Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Sutherland enthusiasts will be thrilled, as indeed I am, by the sheer beauty and power of the singing, by the soprano's total command of the technical requirements the role calls for, and by the identification, in a general sense, with the character's situation."
-- Gramophone [12/1989]

"Sutherland's coloratura virtuosity remains breathtaking, and the cast is a strong one, with Pritchard a most understanding conductor."
-- Penguin Guide [2003/2004 Edition] Reviewing Decca 460 747
