The Complete Collection of Operatic Recital Albums

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Patsy Morita
This 2011 collection gathers 14 albums of music recorded by licrico-spinto soprano Leontyne Price between 1960 and 1982, many of which were Grammy winners. One of America's finest sopranos, Price's recitals covered opera arias from Mozart to Gershwin. An entire disc is devoted to each of those composers here. Naturally, there is also a lot of Verdi and Puccini, including a disc of duets Price made with Placido Domingo, but there is also music by Samuel Barber, Richard Strauss, Purcell, Handel, Offenbach, Bizet, and more. Barring complete opera performances, this anthology is as comprehensive as any admirer of Price's career could hope.
