Notes and Editorial Reviews
Arturo Toscanini described this great American soprano as "the find of the century" and Austria awarded her the prestigious title of Kammersängerin.

Teresa Stich-Randall sang with almost no vibrato, very cleanly and instrumentally. Her strengths were clarity of vocal line and a pronounced sense of style. These qualities had been considered vocal virtues before her day (one need only think of singers like Nellie Melba, Marcella Sembrich and the "old school") and "modern" singers of today, when Baroque operas are being performed with increasing frequency, but they were considered rather exotic during the period of Stich-Randall's singing career. This noted recital is from 1956 at the height of her powers and reveals her beautiful voice within a wide repertoire.
