"What can I say about Mirella? It's one of my favorites sopranos, (Herbet von Karajan thinks like me). The incredible voice and charm, the way not only sings, but spills the feelings of grief and joy. I personally like to watch opera, but I bought this CD just to hear Mirellas's voice. It has selections from I Puritani, Othello (one of her best interpretations), Faust, Manon de Lescault and La Boheme. 9 tracks singing alone, or dueted by Luciano Pavarotti, Stefania Malagú or Gianni Raimondi. Peter Maag, Riccardo Muti and Karajan himself conducting. Recorded from stage, 1963-1970 period, the sound quality suffers in some tracks (compare to full digital), but all have the full sound live perfomance that transports your feelings to the stage.
While you buy this, I'll go and fetch the first volumen."
