 Sutherland in her silvery best November 9, 2017 By peter r. (South Windsor, CT) See All My Reviews "I own the beloved 1973 Sutherland Pavarotti recording. I simply can't get through it. It's dull, in one word. This recording is vibrant, full of energy. The high notes are like rockets. I listened straight through the first night, even treated myself to multiple hearings of some of Sutherland's most stellar moments. Duval is not Pavarotti, true enough. He is strong and has excellent clarity! I'm enthralled, so happy I finally found this gem!" Report Abuse
