Reviews

On Decca Joan Sutherland gives a virtuoso performance in four heroine roles, not only as Olympia, Gielietta and Antonia but also as Stella in the Epilogue. ... Domingo gives one of his finest performances on record, and so does Gabriel Bacquier. It is a memorable set, in every way, much more than the sum of its parts.
