CD Reviews

Delightful
Brian Clever | Oswego, IL USA | 03/18/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm not an opera expert, but if you are looking at the highlights CD
rather than the full length opera, chances are you might not be one
either. For those fans of opera that really don't care that the best
performance of something was back in the 50s or that no one could ever
do it better than Sutherland or Callas and want to hear something that
was recorded on modern equipment then this disc is for you. It is an
amazingly high quality recording, the singers are perfectly matched,
the selection of highlights could not be better and Dessay's singing is
heartwrenchingly beautiful. Of the 1500 CDs I have, this disc has
absolutely rocketed into the top 5 of all time. I'm so glad I bought it
and you will be too."
