Of this book, which is not a discography but a critical work on the development of operatic interpretation and the comparative merits of opera recordings, the author writes in his Preface: "This is a critical review of a near-century's worth of opera records, comprehensive but not all-inclusive, designed to monitor the development of performing stylistics even as it measures the quality of the performances themselves." Dust jacket present.
