DelightfulOctober 6, 2014By Antoinette L. (Murrells Inlet, SC)See All My Reviews"Considering that this is a relatively old recording - i.e. Bjorling has been dead for many years - the fidelity is really quite good and proves that Bjorling was truly one of the greats. I'm so glad that his voice was recorded for posterity. Milanov is her usual passionate self and her portrayal fits Mascagni's design to a tee. Merrill, of course, needs no critique other than his usual greatness. Truly a delightful recording and with an overwhelming score it should be enjoyed by all Cavalleria lovers."Report Abuse
