Bellini: Beatrice di Tenda - Freni, Gonzales, Desderi, Casellato-Lamberti; Arena. Bologna, 1976


Listen to a Sample:


For the most part Mirella Freni did not champion Bel Canto works like some of her colleagues but she did not completely stay out of the game either.  Here she sings Beatrice and shows that she had the chops to manage the long lines and high lying coloratura.  It is also nice to hear a warmer voice sing this part.  The sound is very good.
