"Pampanini’s pure, natural voice was full of warmth and brilliance, with a strong, resonant top register; she was considered one of the world’s leading Puccini sopranos between 1925 and 1940, partly because of the variety of colour and inflection she brought to the utterances of Mimì, Cio-Cio-San and Manon, partly because of the grace and simplicity of her bearing. She was also admired in Andrea Chénier, Iris and Tosca. After she retired in 1946 she taught singing in Milan; Amy Shuard and Victoria Elliott were among her pupils."
