  • Many happy returns to one of the loveliest of operatic artists. She upset some in the opera world, but she believed in the highest of standards and would not suffer some fools gladly.

  • I have never seen a more moving Tatyana or Gilda than hers – and she was a delicious Norina and Adina too …not generally at her best on record (one notices a beat and wobble), but quite magical in the theatre

  • Besides Toscanini’s, probably the best recorded Traviata as a whole indeed, and not least due to the singers.

    But the best Violetta and the best Alfredo? I’m sorry, I stick to Callas and Kraus.
