A beautiful, moving soundtrack, Opera fans will love it.
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Comedy, Romance and Murder. Vladimir Cosma's soundtrack to the quirky film Diva is inspirational. Originally the winner of the 1982 Cesar Award for Best Original Motion Picture Award, this is no "Titanic" soundtrack - it's far more than that. Wilhelmenia Wiggins Fernandez's operatic singing on the theme, La Wally, are beautiful beyond words. Her voice is crystal clear, and the despair and beauty of the piece is brought home.Vladimir Cosma plays the the piano solo for Sentimental Journey, a Debussyesque piece of music.Quirly tracks, like the Zen are of Bread and Butter offset the beauty and seriousness, and add humour to the score.This is a truly beautiful score. A must for Opera fans, and musics fans alike. Neither grand nor pretentious, the score will compliment any music fan's CD collection.Only criticism is the length of the soundtrack - it's a short CD with a running time of around thirty six and a half minutes."
Film noire goes to the opera--what a kick!!

"I loved this soundtrack. The movie is a "keep you on the edge of your seat" French thriller that is true to its origins from the Delacorta novel. The music, and oh what music, captures the protagonist's love of opera, which he in turn tries to capture by smuggling in his homemade, but mighty powerful, recording devices to historic opera performances. Hard to believe that a futuristic, slick somewhat violent plot could mesh with such music, but it does."
This is a MUST-HAVE!

"The musical variety on this recording flows between classical, opera, new age, jazz and other words, this soundtrack skillfully transcends classifications and boudaries."
