Joan Sutherland died Sunday, October 10. She was 83. No more superlatives than have been heaped on her are needed to commemorate her great talent and vocal accomplishments. She was a unique artist. Her many recordings speak more eloquently than any comments could. Below is the long duet that ends the first act of Donizetti’s Lucia Di Lammermoor. The tenor is Richard Tucker. The performance was recorded in New York in December of 1966.
