Description
A testament to the longevity of this American diva's illustrious career (she was dubbed in Italy a "soprano assoluta"), this collection features a 1958 Radio-Canada television production of Act III of Verdi's Aida (a signature role), and a 1982 concert with the Montreal Symphony in which Price performs arias from Mozart's Così fan tutte; Verdi's Ernani and La Forza del Destino; Gershwin'sPorgy and Bess; and Puccini's Madama Butterfly, Gianni Schicchi, and Tosca. In a bonus selection of Bell Telephone Hour appearances from 1963–1967, Price sings arias from Verdi's Aida, Il Trovatore, and La Forza del Destino. (Includes optional English subtitles.)

"She brought such staggering musicality and artistic intelligence. She communicated with penetrating perceptions and amazing sonorities, phrasing with intensity and fabulous articulation regardless of the language.... She skyrocketed as the perfect Verdian interpreter and sang with consistent musicianship the significant arias that expressed their emotions."—Chicago Defender

"In the 1960s and '70s Leontyne Price led the list of America's divas of choice."—The Crisis
