Notes and Editorial Reviews

Illuminating... [Caballé] concludes the narrative section of ''In questa reggia'', the tale of the rape and murder of her ancestress Louling, not with the customary full-voiced trumpeting of her determination to avenge ''that shriek and that death'' but with a diminuendo. Turandot's pity for her remote forebear is audible, the fact that she does have a heart, ''girdled with ice'' though it may be, is made clear even in this demonstration of her implacability. Caballe's realization that a lot of Turandot's music can be sung quietly gives another moment of insight in her confrontation with Liu, where her wonderment at the tortured girl's fortitude is genuine, and this scene even gains from the fact that the two sopranos [Caballé Read more and Freni] are vocally much more evenly matched than usual.

-- Michael Oliver, Gramophone [12/1994]
