REVIEWS

"It is a puzzle why, if Pavarotti can make it big, the infinitely more gifted Rita Hunter has been so seriously ignored by opera companies and record labels alike.…(on this CD) Hunter goes through her paces in a real old-fashioned recital program.…Of course, these are as much showpieces as the stuff that Pavarotti trots out, but Hunters's artistry is of an altogether higher order. Where Pavarotti deals in cliche after sobbing cliche, Hunter brings a far greater emotional range and places it at the service of a searching musical intelligence…Hunter's performances are thoroughly distinguished."
Andrew Ford
24 Hours May 1994
