CD Reviews

Popp's Ambitious Song Recital
Walt Hall (AZWALTHALL@aol.com) | Phoenix, AZ | 09/13/1999
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Lucia Popp was one of the world's premier lieder performers. This recital from 1975 shows her extraordinary musical intelligence along with a maddening tendency to sing material not really suited for her voice. The Dvorak, in particular, is ill-suited for such a small instrument. The Schubert is much more appropriate, even Die Junge Nonne, which she sings with lyrical intensity. Her Schubert Hyperion set, recorded a year before her untimely death, shows her artistic powers in a more glowing and autumnal context."

"To hear the achingly tender voice of the late, great soprano Lucia Popp in live recital brought tears to my eyes and made me all the more mindful of what a tragic loss her death was. As always, her instrument is perfect and the interpretation of the material is elegant. This recital was done when she was in her mid thirties; her (then) husband, the conductor Georg Fischer, accompanies her on piano."
