"On this disc, featuring recordings made for Columbia by Alexander Kipnis between 1928 and 1930, the singing must be heard to be believed; it is doubtful whether there is a basso at work today who can rival it....magisterial performances. The basso's deep tones do not keep him from deft coloratura work...the phrasing and diction are superb....These recordings have been brilliantly remastered by Seth B. Winner from original source material (metal parts and lacquers)....An absolute ‘must’!"
