CDA 1693-2 Limelight and Limestone - A singing Journey

Why "Limestone and Limelight?"
Well, Margareta Dellefors, apart from being a first class singer also was active at the Swedish Radio
and she also initiated Dalhalla to become a paradise for opera in the lime stone quarry in Dalarna.

These are all major achievements resulting in Dellefors becoming a leading person in Swedish music life.
Her singing also bears witness of an excellent understanding of singing opera and other great works for soprano.
It should be said that the performances are in mono, they date a long time back.
Still, the recordings are all good enough to stand next to other great singers performances!
You will enjoy the Rangström pieces, they are world prémiere.
