Notes and Editorial Reviews

The three sopranos chiefly featured on this compact disc are linked in a number of ways. Storchio and Kruszelnicka were born in the same year, 1872, began their operatic activities in the 1890s, and retired in the early 1920s. The indissoluble link is that both can claim to have created the role of Madame Butterfly. Kruszelnicka made Italy her home base, although she was born in Galicia in the then Austro-Hungarian Empire. Arkel, too, was born in Galicia, in 1862, and also sought to base her career in Italy, although with much less success. Perhaps it is worth bearing in mind that this was indeed a golden age of Italian sopranos. A previous disc in this series focused on Burzio, Carelli and Mazzoleni, and we should not forget Boninsegna and Read more Russ. The careers of all eight coincided with the early development of the gramophone, and all, except for Boninsegna, recorded for Fonotipia. Arkel, Kruszelnicka and Storchio also made their very first recordings for the Gramophone and Typewriter Company Read less
