Notes and Editorial Reviews

Eleanor Steber (1914-1990) is remembered as perhaps the greatest American soprano, and certainly one of the most technically refined voices of the century.

Miss Steber is seen and heard in excerpts from opera, operetta, and oratorio.

For a program of this variety, her interpretive range is truly phenomenal; she brings an incisive musical and dramatic character to each piece.

On encountering these performances, it is difficult to again hear the music without recalling the way in which Miss Steber makes a precious gem of each aria.
