“Like Callas and Sutherland, [Kurz’s] was a large voice that progressed from spinto rôles to the lyric coloratura repertoire….A sweeping account of Elisabeth de Valois’ ‘Tu che le vanità’ is the single item here that truly indicates the size and dramatic thrust of the voice….The voice is of luscious quality, the singing technically masterly and sometimes astonishing….”
