Beautiful voice
03/20/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Neglected soprano Miriam Gauci's only solo album contains 13 superb arias expertly sung. In particular, "Vissi d'arte," "Ebben? ne andro lontana," Otello's "Willow Song," and "Senza mamma" are among the best versions of these songs that I have heard."
Surprisingly beautiful voice

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Miriam Gauci, Naxos's treasure, delivers beautiful renditions of many popular Italian arias. Well, actually, many Puccini arias--one might want to remind Naxos that Italian opera does not begin and end with Puccini (or Verdi, for that matter). Miriam Gauci's high notes are pure, sweet, and strong, although she seems to vocalize r's, n's and m's as separate syllables. Therefore at the end of the Catalani aria we get "E fra le nubi d'o-ruh" instead of "d'or." But, diction aside, these are decent versions and with Naxos's low prices, how can you go wrong?"
