Notes and Editorial Reviews

Second only to the latter, at least in technical skill, has been Montserrat Caballé, whose limpidity of tone and highly individual interpretations of Bellini, Verdi and Puccini are constantly fascinating, and who is superbly idiomatic in two substantial Spanish song cycles by Turina and Montsalvatge in which she’s memorably supported by the outstanding pianism of Alexis Weissenberg.
