“…the infinite length of the breath, the science of chiaroscuro, the projection of the treble, the quality of the pianissimi, the variety of accents, in turn authoritarian and vulnerable, including in extraordinarily lively recitatives, as we had not heard them since Maria Callas. As for the bewitching final cantilene (<<Col sorriso d’innocenza>>) no Imogene had reached such summits since Montserrat Caballé.”
