The Royal Opera House

Donizetti: Maria Stuarda CD (Richard Bonynge)

'Sutherland has only to trill or sing a rapid scale or sustain a high, pure note, and I warm to her afresh...Bonynge's conducting has its usual feeling for the spring of a rhythm and the build of a climax; the recording is clear and well balanced.'Gramophone
