Notes and Editorial Reviews

Shining out...is the gloriously sung Amelia of Margaret Price in one of her richest and most commanding performances on record, ravishingly beautiful... The role of Riccardo...is well suited to the extrovert Pavarotti... Bruson makes a noble Renato, Christa Ludwig an unexpected but intense and perceptive Ulrica, while Kathleen Battle is an Oscar whose coloratura is not just brilliant but sweet too.
