5.0 out of 5 stars A hearty bravo., 1 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have just received this book having ordered it yesterday. Bravo. I have merely glanced through its contents,and all I can breathlessly utter is a treble bravo. It will bring a new delight and determination to an elderly amateur (78) like me. Fabric is such a delight to handle and to manipulate. With this book I shall be in the company of a true master. Much gratitude.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful comparatively little know singer,, 29 July 2011
A kind of mini-Callas with a rich mezzo strain to her velvet voice. Not quite first league but wonderful just the same. Take it in small doses.

3.0 out of 5 stars Miraculous value,, 29 July 2011
This review is from: Bellini - Operas (Audio CD)
These discs are all taken from radio broadcasts and are a wonderful way to get to know these works at a ridiculous price. Not a hundred percent first rate, but very good. Thry them. You won't regret it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but annoying., 29 July 2011
It's well worth a go with this live performance of a little known Donizetti opera in a concert performance from Covent Garden. However, my enjoyment was continually being curtailed by the sudden cutting off at the end of each track, sometimes erasing some of the music. Ghastly and a real shame. The action is continuous after all. Master it again, please.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading but a bit of a slog., 29 July 2011
This is an excellent book and very very atmospheric. It is however quite a slog to get through. In the main however, very worth while by a brilliant but sad author, God rest his soul,

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous Simon,, 29 July 2011
A marvellous and tremendous value for money disc-set. First rate recordings. Get to know this by now off-beat music a bit better. Bravo

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous., 29 July 2011
Another selection of live performances from the 40s and 50s. Good if slightly boxy sound. Not for hi-fi addicts but for musicians it's a blinder. The wonderful Schubert trio number 2 is miraculous and easily the equal of the Casals one from Prades.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent entertainment. Splendid value., 15 Mar 2009
I enjoyed this CD to such an extent that I went and bought another of the same as a present to my sister-in-law who loves it. The singing by these two singers of the eighties is of their best, the music unusual, not often heard and first rate. Light entertainment to delight.
