An even rarer recording of Joan Sutherland than the previous release on Désirée Records... Her Australia House Recital 1959 - a few months after her spectacular debut as Lucia di Lammermoor.  This recording was made on the evening by someone in the audience and has never been heard since! This exciting new release comes direct from the only existing tape.

Joan Sutherland, soprano; Richard Bonynge, pianoforte

Recorded live in Australia House, London on 18th June 1959.
