'True old-fashioned bel canto sound - the sort we only dream about today' announced Richard Bonynge, internationally recognized as one of the greatest of opera conductors and connoisseurs of the voice, speaking of Greta Bradman. Bonynge chose Greta to sing the title role in a performance of Rodelinda in 2014 and the critics were lavish in their praise. 'With a dark mezzo quality in her middle voice and an ability to float her voice when singing soft sustained notes and intricate coloratura passages, she was at times uncannily similar in vocal quality to Sutherland,' wrote Classic Melbourne. On the strength of these performances, Bonynge invited Greta to record with him, and in May this year, the two collaborated on her first operatic recording to be released internationally on Decca - the label that is home to such great artists as Luciano Pavarotti, Renata Tebaldi, Cecilia Bartoli and Renee Fleming. Bonynge himself made well over a hundred records for Decca between 1962 and 1998, many with his late wife, Joan Sutherland. This album marks an auspicious return for the maestro to the label.
