Comment: All CDs are guaranteed to play properly. CD in jewel case with front and back inserts. A well-cared-for CD that has been listened to, but remains in great condition and plays perfectly. The jewel case may show limited signs of wear, as may the inserts.

This CD is a must for fans of Mirella Freni. A few topics discussed were the beginning of her career; anecdotes from Freni's collaborations with Herbert von Karajan especially on Boheme, Madama Butterfly and Otello; and even her memories of Maria Callas.

When considering buying this CD, I was worried the interviewer would take over the interview with Freni chiming in every so often, but Tolansky was quite good at setting her up for some very substantial and interesting discussion. And just so there's no confusion, most of the songs on the CD are not the complete versions (they are of good quality, though), but they're long enough to illustrate the points Tolansky and Freni were making.
