Irene Dalis in Recital, For Collectors and Everyone Else

A priceless CD which illustrates and strongly underscores the consummate vocal and dramatic mastery of this great American mezzo of the 50's and 60's. It offers us, unfortunately, only a few limited examples and vocal fragments of a young and still developing Irene Dalis. Click here for more information.
