Notes and Editorial Reviews
“includes the most perfect trill (the Bononcini) we have ever heard” (alto) ‘After so many spinto Annas who sound like refugees from Brünnhilde’s riding club, it was a revelation to hear a fresh, young lyric voice of uncommon purity at the command of an impeccable musician…She did not stun with bravura; she captivated with humanity’ (Opera Magazine on Sutherland’s Donna Anna 1957/8)
