One of Dame Joan Sutherland?s own favourite recordings, long unavailable on it's own, reissued with additional material recorded at the Geneva sessions, with rarely seen photographs and a new booklet introduction. In her introduction to this reissue of Sutherland?s 1969 recording of Romantic French Arias, Fiona Janes notes that the album was made just shy of the soprano?s 43rd birthday, roughly halfway through her career. A distinguished mezzo-soprano herself, Janes is now Artistic Director of the Joan Sutherland & Richard Bonynge Foundation.
