“The soprano Julie Adams, from California, impressed me as the most mature of the winners with her elegant account of an aria from Debussy’s lyric cantata “L’ Enfant Prodigue” and an affecting performance of Mimi’s “Donde lieta uscì” from Puccini’s “La Bohème.” Her voice is rich, full and slightly earthy in an expressive way.”
