Notes and Editorial Reviews

Most protean of all, perhaps, is Swedish tenor Nicolai Gedda, who could sing, expertly, in umpteen languages and umpteen-and-three musical styles, and seems to fit most of them in here. Take your pick from Spanish song to French opera, from Puccini to Beethoven, from Prince Igor to Haydn’s L’infedeltà delusa, and all delivered with immaculate taste and technique.
