Notes and Editorial Reviews

Eugenia Burzio is known as one of the most famous female interpreters of verismo. She was an actress of gripping intensity whose career centered in Italy and whose recorded legacy closely mirrored her stage career in time and repertoire. Her voice was rich, dramatic and passionate. Like some singers who lived and performed at the cusp of the century, Burzio harkened to the past, using an emphatic open chest voice. This two CD set contains at least one recording of every aria and ensemble recorded by Burzio. It also contains an unpublished test pressing of "Non fui da un padre" from Loreley as well as other rarities on Fonotipia and Pathé. Liner notes are presented by William Ashbrook.
