Fleming breaks other new ground on this Russian visit . . . the excerpts here, especially her "Casta Diva", find her handling bel canto demands with aplomb. She is poised and elegant in the legato Bellini line, seems never to stop for breath and trills steadily.

Les vedettes de la soirée, accompagnées par un orchestre vif et nerveux se "défoncent" avec une énergie qui laisse pantois. Quant aux mélodies, elles montrent les scrupules et l'émotion de ces musiciens d'exception. Une invitation au voyage qui ne se refuse pas.
