Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
American Record Guide (11-12/97, p.258) - "...The straightforward display arias are all dispatched with considerable aplomb, but the purely lyric items emerge as something rather special. While she is not an obvious candidate for the role of Violetta, her `Ah fors'e lui' instantly compels the listener's attention....The orchestral playing, conducting, recording, and presentation are all of a high standard and contibute to a wholly delightful experience."
