The Golden Age of Singing Volume 1 1900-1910
Celebrating the golden era of operatic singing, this special collection (the first of four volumes), culled from the highly acclaimed Prima Voce series, highlights the singers of the first decade of the 20th century - including Enrico Caruso, Francesco Tamagno, Emma Eames, Adelina Patti, Nellie Melba, Antonina Nezhdanova, and a host of others. Even at its earliest, the gramophone could capture the ring and body of the human voice, particularly of a tenor or baritone, with thrilling immediacy.
|Review||"This is a wonderful selection of opera arias by the legendary singers who made the early 20th century one of the golden ages of opera. The quality of this recording is exceptionally good, without the distortional background noise of the originals. All four volumes are highly recommended."- P. Mossel|
