    Default Donizetti's Three Queens

    So we all should be familiar with the three queens 7-CD set with Beverly Sills, but what other singers have done all three queens in recordings? I am thinking that maybe Gruberova did? Or was it Scotto?

    They need to put out a Gruberova Three Queens set. I only have her Maria Stuarda and it is a very good one, in fact, one of the best of the 10 Maria Stuarda's I have.

    Not studio recordings, but in live performance there is Leyla Gencer, and she is fabulous!

    I have Gencer on CD for Roberto Devereux and Maria Stuarda, but could not find Anna Bolena except on You Tube.

    The "problem" with Nightingale classic is, it's a very small company owned by Gruberova and her husband.
    They don't do cheaper sets , just like Opera Rara. After so many years all is still full price.

    In our dream world we can have three queens sets from all our favorite singers, even if they never sang all three.

    Well now we have Leyla in all three in a single release. But I can't tell if it is remastered. I have each separately, but would love to have it in a set like this. I have been listening today and frankly, this one goes to the top of my list.
