This is quite possibly the recording of the century. I may be biased because I believe Dame Joan to be the greatest singer that has ever existed, but this is a true masterclass in bel canto singing. Those who think she was simply a vocal technician are truly misguided. Yes, she had to worry more about the vocal production as the voice aged, but what is presented here is a fantastic melding of emotion, expression, and agility.
