Professional debut was in Barcelona,her home city,in 1944.
Her worldwide international debut was in 1949/1950,and continued until 1997.
Among her many recordings are La Boheme with Jussi Bjorling,and Madam Butterfly with Guiseppe di Stefano. Her second Butterfly recording was with Bjorling in Rome,1960.
The La Boheme recording with Bjorling is considered the finest Boheme on record.
