About

Why "Limestone and Limelight"? Well, Margareta Dellefors, apart from being a first-class singer, was also active at the Swedish Radio and she also initiated Dalhalla to become a paradise for opera in the limestone quarry in Dalarna. These are all major achievements resulting in Dellefors becoming a leading person in Swedish music life. Her singing also bears witness to an excellent understanding of singing opera and other great works for soprano. It should be said that the performances are in mono, they date a long time back (1963 to 1972). Still, the recordings are all good enough to stand next to other great singers' performances! You will enjoy the Rangström pieces, they are a world premiere.
