"Though some of the girlish freshness of voice which marked the 1961 recording had disappeared by the 1971 set, Sutherland's detailed understanding was intensified. Power is there as well as delicacy, and the rest of the cast is first-rate." (Penguin Guide)
"Pavarotti's rendition of "Una Furtiva Lagrima" (the most famous aria in the opera) has to be counted among the finest renditions of the piece. Sutherland is amusing as Adina and of course her singing is brilliant" (Epoch Times NY]
"The "L'elisir" set was one of the loveliest things Sutherland ever did on record . . . As Donizetti's Adina she is charming -- touching, exuberant, virtuoso (her coloratura is astounding), and always very human. Pavarotti is a perfect Nemorino, his lyric tenor made for the role. With Spiro Malas a characterful Dulcamara and Bonynge drawing fizzing playing from the ECO, this is a delight." (Gramophone)
