Troyanos is Superb

"If you have never before had the experience of hearing the late mezzo-soprano Tatiana Troyanos, this CD is a wonderful starting point. And for all of us who have been fans of Troyanos' for some time, this also is a "must have."At long last, we have a lieder recital of hers preserved on compact disc. Here, finally, is a masterfully engineered recording.Troyanos is as gifted a singer of lieder as she was of opera. My favorite selection on this recording was Ravel's Greek Songs. But everything here is absolutely terrific. I have listened to it many times since I bought it, and it still brings tears to my eyes. There will never be another like her. Many thanks to all those who worked to bring us this recording."

"This live recital by Troyanos, with accompanist Livine, is what fans have long been waiting for. Simply said, this recital genuinely reflects the beauty and passion that was expressed through Troyanos' unique voice. Her sound was exquisite and this cd remains true to that sound. For those of us who love her sound and miss her presence on the operatic stage, this is a wish come true. Levine also provides great accompaniment. Let's hope there is more live material by Troyanos awaiting release in the near future."
Superb recital...

"in every way. Ms. Troyanos impresses us vocally, artistically and linguistically. The songs encompass a wide range of languages, musical styles and emotionality, and yet she sounds quite comfortable in each setting. Bolstered by Maestro Levine's heartfelt accompaniment, Ms. Troyanos renders a performance that inspired me to feelings of both awe and admiration. We are fortunate indeed to have this permanent record of such a memorable performer. I was inspired to seek out her performances after viewing a recent rebroadcast of the 1982 Met telecast of Der Rosenkavalier which featured her as Octavian."
