“Maria Barrientos was one of the most eminent sopranos of her time. She was not only a fabulous singer but also a beautiful woman. She made a valuable set of recordings for Fonotopia and Columbia. Her voice is of almost instrumental limpidity….an extraordinary legato similar to the sound of a Stradivari violin.”
