About

full of fresh innocence, Sutherland’s coloratura virtuosity remains breath-taking, and the cast is a strong one, with a most understanding conductor” - Penguin Guide (3 stars)

Sutherland's miraculous singing is not the only virtue of this set … There is hardly an operatic centre left which has not acclaimed Sutherland's Lucia … (she) is without rival today in her command of the vocal arts - trills, scales and arpeggios, messa di voce, glissando. Her tone is beautiful, and each year becomes sweeter, rounder and fuller, in both gentle and brilliant passages. Her interpretation of Lucia is a fully conceived study … In this performance, passage after passage is melting, exquisite, dazzling, breath-taking … Cioni, currently Sutherland's favoured partner, was a first-rate choice for Edgardo.” - Gramophone

Recorded 1961
