Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
American Record Guide (11-12/97, p.257) - "...[Ying Huang's] voice is warm and softly caressing, yet it has enough body and bite to maintain a firm musical line. In Musetta's aria and the high-flying phrases of Doretta's Dream, every note is smoothly and beautifully attacked and placed perfectly in the melodic sequence....I question whether the bel canto repertoire really suits her, though she sounds more assured in `Una voce poco fa' and Norina's aria..."
