Rita Gorr (1923-2012) was for many music-lovers the greatest Belgian operatic mezzo-soprano of all time. She was famous across the globe for her magnificent singing and stylised performances in the world's great opera houses. On this superbly compiled new transfer, we can hear her in her prime in French repertoire - in which she excelled, ranging from the 18th-century to Massenet. The result is a feast of great singing from a truly much admired mezzo-soprano, assiduously accompanied by two famous French orchestras under two of the finest conductors of this repertoire of their day. The recording quality is equally fine, and finely balanced.
