. . . there is surely room for the interpretations of artists of the calibre assembled here . . . much about this recording is admirable, down to an elegant and attractive Moralès . . . Baltsa has a such a smoky, sexy, sultry mezzo . . . Her gutsy demeanour is similar to that of fellow-Greek Maria Callas . . . [Ricciarelli] is quite effective as a foil to Baltsa, Carreras is still in very good voice . . . and he sings most feelingly; he executes a lovely soft B flat on "une chose a toi" in the "Flower song" and makes a fine job of the final ten minutes, suggesting total desperation while remaining vocally secure . . . [van Dam] is superb here: swaggering, secure and incisive of tone, with ringing top notes.
