Notes and Editorial Reviews

*** This title is a reissue of a Japanese release with liner notes in Japanese. ***

"Miss Horne's mezzo-soprano and Miss Price's soprano served two very different purposes - the first wonderfully athletic and graceful, the second supported by a fierce musical intensity. Miss Horne raced with wonderful virtuosity through arias from Handel's ''Rodelinda'' and Rossini's ''L'Assedio di Corinto,'' and as Adalgisa, was very moving in the ''Norma'' sequence.
''Dove sono'' from Mozart's ''Le Nozze di Figaro,'' was, in Miss Price's hands, the perfect confluence of taste and passion - lean, articulate in detail and burning fiercely at every moment. Verdi's ''Pace, Pace'' from ''La Forza del Destino'' was even more
Read more eloquent for exactly the same reasons... The Met orchestra under James Levine played beautifully."

Bernard Holland, New York Times [3/29/1982]
