This review is from: Bellini: I Puritani (Audio CD)
Pavarotti and Sutherland are breathtaking in this set.
Pavarotti is in his utter prime and can muster up staggeringly good singing. Sutherland is magical, as in her second Lucia di Lammermoor she has a radiant tone perfect for Donizetti, and her diction sounds improved over her earlier recordings. The rest of the cast are strong with lots of character. Bonynge gives able direction and the sound is pristine stereo.
Although the price is high for a 1970's recording the talent of the singers is of such a level to make this good value for money.

Although it certainly can be argued that Sutherland had the perfect voice for Donizetti, I Puritani is in fact by Bellini.
