Review by analogue March 4, 2009 (6 of 6 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
I'm not going into to much detail about opera music in general. I think if you are looking at these reviews I don;t need to tell you how beautiful this music is.

A compilation of Miss. Moffo's vocals from different opera's. Her voice is a thing of intense beauty and is rendered here in all of it's full and epic splendor. The music is also magnificent.

Rca Living Stereo has produced famous recordings and this transfer from the orignal master tapes is fantastic. I tend to find the rca living stereo transfers a little on the cool side but the uncanny realism and three dimensional impact to these recordings and this transfer is really impressive. This is what sacd is all about.

It is very easy indeed to see why Moffo's voice is so appreciated even today. It's magnificent to say the least.

This sacd is a little on the short side (less than 50 minutes) but is also very cheap. Why not treat yourself to a voice that will flow out of the speakers like fine wine and touch you??? This is a REAL sacd not a pretender.

Highly recommended.
