Notes and Editorial Reviews
Edita Gruberova is an undisputed queen of bel canto opera. When this recording first appeared, Gramophone praised her Lucia for combining the best qualities of such legendary interpreters as Joan Sutherland, Maria Callas and Toti dal Monte. She is partnered by Alfredo Kraus, one of the great tenor stylists of the 20th century, Renato Bruson, a baritone exceptional for his amalgam of power and elegance, and Nicola Rescigno, a conductor deeply versed in the Italian operatic tradition.
