One of the great coloraturas.
(5 out of 5 stars)
"While these vocals were recorded seventy plus years ago, and one must make some allowences for the lack of sophisticated recording equipment of the time, Amelita Galli-Curci remains one of the greatest sopranos of this century in the bel canto tradition. These recordings are well done with a minimum of the hiss or "noise" of which any collector of early opera recordings is familiar. Ms. Galli-Curci's unique voice never fails to amaze with her vocal range and agility. There are also several duets on this CD and it is always a pleasure to hear the diva's coloratura soaring with a tenor or baritone. If you enjoy early opera, Amelita Galli-Curci is to sopranos what Enrico Caruso is to tenors."
