Lucia Popp is one of the best-documented and most versatile singers of her generation. Because of her linguistic and stylistic flexibility she was able to sing a very wide range of repertoire. Her acting talent was extraordinary as well. Before she began her vocal studies she had studied medicine and drama and acted in a number of movies. This new release shows a richly varied program with soprano arias by Mozart to Weber and Rossini all the way to Lehár and Stolz taken from concerts given in 1968 to 1982.
This disc...is almost unfailingly immaculate. DISC OF THE MONTH --Opera,Mar'12
