Notes and Editorial Reviews
As one of the great singers of his era, and an artist favoured by such conductors as Herbert von Karajan and Georg Solti, José van Dam recorded for all the major labels, including Warner labels Erato and Teldec, but he enjoyed an especially close association with EMI France. This boxed set marking his 75th birthday includes interviews with the legendary bass-baritone conducted by the distinguished journalist and broadcaster Jon Tolansky.
