Composer Criticizes Singer

Which composer said this about what singer?

“He won’t learn anything, he’s lazy and he’s too pleased with himself—all the same his voice is magnificent.”

Puccini about Caruso, in the notes to the disk The Met Centarians: Geraldine Ferrar

(“Farrar doesn’t satisfy me very much, she sings out of tune and forces, and her voice doesn’t carry well in the large space”)
