Chorus of Royal Opera House Covent Garden, London...
Sutherland's singing here is brighter and fresher than her earlier recording, with the lovely aria 'Qui la voce' no longer a wordless melisma...The recording is vivid and atmospheric and one... — More…

London Symphony Orchestra, Richard Bonynge
This is simply one of the great opera recordings in the catalogue...In Sutherland's interpretation, Semiramide is not so much a Lady Macbeth as a passionate, sympathetic woman...Horne is well... — More…

Slovak Philharmonic Choir and Radio Symphony Orchestra, Richard Bonynge
The English title of Kálmán's most celebrated operetta is a misnomer. The heroine is a princess not of gypsies but (as the German title, DieCsárdásfürstin, indicates) of the csárdás; she's a... — More…
