Whether this is truly the "best" of Kiri Te Kanawa's recordings is a moot point; suffice it to say that it's pretty good. Fiordiligi's two arias from Così are splendidly sung and thought out--what a fine Mozart singer she is! The Bohème excerpts are sweet (and Richard Leech is a nice Rodolfo), but they'll hardly erase memories of your favorite Mimi. The same can be said for Dame Kiri's Tosca, but her "O mio babbino caro" remains world class. The two excerpts from Tannhäuser are beautifully done, while a song each by Schumann and Holst are nicely intimate. And if you can stomach Michel Legrand's "The Windmills of Your Mind," you're stronger than most people. Kiri's fans won't be disappointed. --Robert Levine
