 Bel Canto fan July 16, 2012 By Perry S. (New Plymouth, -) See All My Reviews "For a high priced set of CD's this recording is a disappointment. The sound is adequate, not great. And some of the long tracks could easily be divided into shorter ones. Obviously, as the only recording on the market, Bongiovanni can get away with these things.
I have never been a fan of Luciana Serra and purchased these discs with some reluctance. However, she is better than on some of her other recordings. Sometimes a little hard on higher notes, but more often she lightens her volume and the sound is fine. The other voices are good.
Am pleased I got the recording, especially as it was on sale."
