CD Reviews

Not As I'd Hoped
Thomas Tallis | Long Beach, CA United States | 07/12/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The Pearl Fishers duet is cut in half even though there was plenty of room on the CD for the whole thing. This is a real shame and is why I gave this release only two stars. This release has all the earmarks of something hastily thrown together by a Warner Music employee who knew little about opera and cared less. A real disappointment."
Great Arias!

"If you're an opera lover, this CD is for you. All the great arias. My wife adores this album."

(4 out of 5 stars)

"An excellent selection of material and an ideal introduction to opera. Many of the arias are very popular but there are a few unfamiliar gems hidden there. If you want to introduce someone to the joy and delight of opera there is no better collection with which to do it. I was particularly taken by the vocal technique of Jennifer Larmour but to single her out from among so many excellent artists is perhaps unfair. I can't wait for Volume 2.40 Most Beautiful Arias
