CD Reviews

Sheer Artistry
Russell Jackson | Melbourne , Australia | 10/21/2000

"This Delos Double has only recently appeared in Australian CD stores and, I am informed, sold immediately. I have always admired the tonal beauty of Arleen Auger's voice and the intelligent communication of her singing. Like Kathleen Ferrier, she may well attain cult status, having died so young. These discs are superbly produced and are a fitting memorial in anyone's collection to this outstanding American soprano."

"After much auditioning and re-auditioning, Auger's "Rejoice" here has finally replaced Kathleen Battle's fine performance on "Grace" as my favorite.Both singers are at their best in the repeat, where their technique and ornamentation will knock anyone's socks off. But where Battle does a musical and brilliant concerto-like display of Kathleen Battle, Auger instead serves Handel with overriding sincerity. She builds intensity to an incredible pitch, ending on an almost trumpet-like flourish to announce the coming of the King.As did so much of her singing, this recording sets the all-time standard. Fortunately for the world, the damned brain cancer that killed her body could not take her music from us."
Be warned!

"My copy did not have the works by Heitor Villa-Lobos. The first disk in the set is Delos 3026, "Bach, Handel: Arias," which includes two selections from Alexander's Feast and "He Shall Feed His Flock" from the Messiah. I am not disappointed. Ms. Auger sings wonderfully. My second disk is Delos 3029 "Love Songs," which makes it a good bargain. But there are no texts."
