Emma Eames and Pol Plançon 1903-1911
Emma Eames was an American soprano renowned for the beauty of her voice. She sang major lyric and lyric-dramatic roles in opera and had an important career in New York, London and Paris during the last decade of the 19th century and the first decade of the 20th century. Pol-Henri Plançon was a distinguished French operatic bass. He was one of the most acclaimed singers active during the 1880s, 1890s and early 20th century—a period often referred to as the "Golden Age of Opera".
|Review||"The selection of recordings by both singers has been well made. I should add that the amount of hall-resonance in these Nimbus transfers is, I would have thought, likely to be unacceptable only to people who have already made up their mind that they don't want any at all, and the horn-resonance points, troublesome in some of the earlier issues in the series, seem to have been virtually eliminated." John B. Steane, Gramophone|
