When one of my friends heard her voice they said "She sounds like a bell", and they were absolutely right. Her voice has the most beautiful, silver, "bell" like quality to it. This quality of her voice absolutely melts my heart everytime I hear it. As far as sheer beauty of tone goes, she has few rivals.

In this album, she gives us a diverse selection of Mozart's arias. She does everything from Mezzo arias to high lying coloratura arias. Althoug she's not a coloratura, she handles all the runs, jumps and trills quite superbly. Her trill, by the way, is particularly lovely.

I could wax eloquent about Ms. Price all day, but I'll leave you with this: If you want to hear the beautiful, elegant music of Mozart being brought to life by a voice of unparalleled beauty,


Biography: Although she was born to a musical family, Dame Margaret's father did not want her to take up singing as a career.
On the recommendation of her music teacher, she went to London to sing to Charles Kennedy Scott and at the age of 15 was awarded a scholarship to study with him at Trinity College of Music.

Recognising his daughter's talent and ambition, Mr Price had a change of heart and wrote to several opera houses on her behalf. This led to her acclaimed debut with Welsh National Opera in 1962 as Cherubino in Mozart's Marriage of Figaro.

Like her compatriot Dame Gwyneth Jones, Dame Margaret also became an overnight sensation due to a star's illness. She performed the same role at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, as understudy to Teresa Berganza.

Since then Dame Margaret became renowned across the world as a performer of opera and Lieder, particularly of Mozart and Verdi. She was awarded the CBE in 1982 and was made a dame in 1993.

Although she lived for many years in Germany, Dame Margaret returned home to Wales following her retirement in 1999.

She died at her home near Cardigan in January 2011 at the age of 69.
