Reviews

‘Caballé sings with solid, beautifully produced tone … Ghaiurov gives an arresting portrayal of Mefistofele … full of colour, sparkle and sensuality’ ClassicsToday.com

‘Riveting and hugely impressive … at a purely musical level this remains amongst the cream of the Eloquence catalogue’ MusicWeb
