I had this on vinyl and gave it away, so I was overjoyed to find it available as a DVD. The recording shows Sutherland at her peak; she was truly extraordinary and at her best singing bel canto. An essential recording for all lovers of this genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Heavenly Joy! 23 Aug. 2016

This is a superb recording from the 60's of three outstandingly good voices. This is my most treasured CD.

Absolutely beautiful! Very well remastered and transferred to CD. I also have this on vinyl. All three singers are wonderful. However, I must say though I respect Conrad's skills a lot, I am not too crazy about his voice.

3.0 out of 5 stars ART OF BEL CANTO IS WEAK ON TENORS 4 Oct. 2013
By Rock Hound - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The 1st CD features sopranos, and the 2nd, tenors. A logical arrangement! However, 1st CD has a lot of songs that are obscure for a reason--they haven't held up well over time. For the tenors, weak in artists like Caruso and Martinelli. Also, not sure what the compilers think Bel Canto is--some good liner notes would have helped.

Every track is fabulous. Fill your room and your life with this beautiful music! Absolutely delightful! There are two records in this album. It is a must-have.
