Notes and Editorial Reviews

A top class evening of song! Although Marilyn Horne was 58 years old at the time of this concert, no weakness clouded the beauty of her voice, indeed she appears at the height of her abilities as an artist! Among the recordings over the course of Horne's career, there are many Rossini operas. This all-Rossini program shows that she could also convincingly dominate the smaller forms as well. Parts of this repertoire by Marilyn Horne had been previously released on CD, but are no longer available. A top class evening of song!
