"One of the leading Italian lirico spinto sopranos of her day, Scotto invested her roles with a rare combination of vocal agility and dramatic power. Pathos, as in the second act of La traviata or the last of La sonnambula and Madama Butterfly, was her particularly strong suit, and few sopranos have encompassed so easily the qualities called for by both Lucia and Butterfly (which she recorded in a classic version under Barbirolli). Among Scotto's other operatic recordings are eloquent interpretations of Violetta, Gilda and Desdemona." Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online.. From the studio of Christian Steiner.
