Bravissima!!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Caballe is truly the mistress of song. I don't think I've ever heard a more sustained pianissimo in all my 50 years of Opera going. She is so underated I think. She should be consider one of the greatest voices of our time. But when you mention the name Caballe to the common person, they don't know who she is. This cd is just amazing. I just cry when this great diva floats her perfect pianissimo high notes. To hear another incredible recording of Caballe, buy Puccini's masterpiece Turandot conducted by Mehta. Not only do you get Caballe in the role of Liu, which shows off her pianissimo better then any role I've heard her in, but you also get the legendary Joan Sutherland in glorious voice, and the wonderful Luciano Pavorotti. I would say three of the greatest voices of all time in one recording!!! If you love Caballe, you must purchase her singing of Liu in the set conducted by Mehta!!!"
A perfect introduction to Caballe's voice

"A collection taken from Caballe's complete opera recordings, with pianissimos that will take your breath away, especially in "O patria mia" from Aida. Each selection is wonderfully expressive, with highlights from the best of Italian opera."
Nice variety.

"I enjoyed the variety of content and the span of time (early to late 1970s) represented in this CD. For comparison wonks like me, there are 16 arias, several orchestras, a nice mix of conductors and 75 minutes of gorgeous singing here. Nice for the price!"
