In this recording itís obviously about the combination of Renato Bruson and Grace Bumbry. The audience has evidently come to cheer on their favourite baritone and Bumbry clearly has to fight for the attention of her initially cool public. This recording of her Lady is the best ever and with Renata Scotto the best interpretation of the past years. Vocally Bumbry conquers on all levels. Renato Bruson is also in top form and together with Grace Bumbry itís a great experience.
