CRITIC REVIEWS:

"Certainly worth the price of the price of admission are the 1971 live performance of Lisitsian's gorgeous aria from ALEKO . . . as well as the private 1948 recordings of Dino Borgioli!

The great name here for collectors is Pavel Lisitsian, born in 1911, who was probably one of the [last] century’s dozen best operatic baritones. To spend an hour or so with Lisitsian’s records is to be reminded what a joy it is to hear the work of a real master.”

- Will Crutchfield, THE NEW YORK TIMES, 29 July, 1990

“An artist like Dino Borgioli, whom I have many a time had occasion to refer to in enthusiastic terms, is the rarest of rare exceptions. A 'Borgioli' is very rare anywhere, and even more so in Italy.”

- Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji. THE MUSICAL TIMES, June, 1937
