THE FIRST OF THE TWELVE discs in this collection of Anna Moffo's RCA recital recordings begins with a 1960 performance of the jewel song from Gounod's Faust, and that selection, along with the others on this disc, sets out the singer's basic assets and liabilities. It's a fresh lyric sound-Moffo was twenty-eight that year-even throughout the range, accurate in pitch and coloratura, with a good try at a trill. She phrases with musicality but not much nuance or variety of color. These qualities serve her and the music well in the coloratura fireworks of the shadow song from Meyerbeer's Dinorah; "Bel raggio," from Rossini's Semiramide; and the bell song from Delibes's Lakmé, all of which she tosses off with ease. Micaela's aria from Carmen, however, demands more emotional thrust, while her Mimì and Liù are bland and anonymous.
Moffo's career, as she admitted in later years, was damaged by too much, too soon. The essay in the printed booklet is aptly titled "The Curse of Beauty." It didn't help that Moffo was compared to Maria Callas, and was rashly encouraged to emulate the older diva. By 1962, Moffo recorded a disc of Verdi arias-not just lighter pieces such as the bolero from I Vespri Siciliani,but also the big stuff from Un Ballo in Maschera, Aida and Otello, in which she is plainly beyond her depth, vocally and interpretively. A year later, she was pushed in the opposite direction, recording The Dream Duet, operetta excerpts with tenor Sergio Franchi performed in a stylistic no-man's land somewhere between bad Broadway, bad Vienna and bad Hollywood. Skip this nightmare entirely.
