5.0 out of 5 stars Bartoli in lesser-known repertoire 3 July 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is one of Cecilia Bartoli's earlier recordings, and seems to have been eclipsed by her many later operatic discs. It does not deserve to be, as these are as good performances as you are likely to hear of these Italian songs by Beethoven and Schubert. I love both composers' German Lieder, and while I had heard some of Beethoven's Italian songs before, the Schubert canzonas were new to me. Hearing his characteristic Lieder-music to Italian words is fascinating. The little Mozart song is beautiful, but you may need to listen to Haydn's extended piece a few times to get to know it.

Cecilia's voice is beautifully fresh and appealing at all times, and Andras Schiff is excellent, without the mannerisms of some of his Lieder accompaniments for other singers.

1.0 out of 5 stars The one cloud on the Bartoli horizon 4 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD
Lovely music, fine accompaniment, but Bartoli herself is (by her own standards) in poor voice for once. Steer well clear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable album . . . . great musicians 10 May 2000
By Kate - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This album includes a number of rare pieces in the Italian repertoire. Written by standard composers (Haydn, Shubert, Beethoven, and Mozart), they accompany the Italian words of Pietro Metastasio, a prominent poet in the early to mid-1700's. Metastasio's poetry was used until the mid 1840's as lyrics to classical songs. These texts are archetypes of the 'opera seria' libretto in both form and content. So some might find this album peculiar, particularly since you are most likely not used to hearing Italian words with Shubert melodies. Don't be timid! Bartoli's voice is incredible, and free from many of the terrible habits that have characterized her lately (swallowed low notes, breathy pianissimo sound, etc). She sounds rich and expressive, and as always, her interpretive techniques are top-of-the-line. The Mozart "Ridente la calma" will especially warm your heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intimate Italian Recital By Cecilia 9 Jun 2004
By stardustraven - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This disc offers a recital of Italian songs set to music by Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert and Haydn. Beethoven and Schubert may come as a surprise to the listener here in regard to Italian repertoire, but Mozart and Haydn had already set Italian texts to music. Actually Beethoven and Schubert are each featured here with several songs, Mozart is represented by 'Ridente La Calma' and Haydn with the poignant cantata 'Árianna a Naxos'. These songs are mostly set to music on texts by Pietro Metastasio, which deal with such universal themes as love, grief, death and loss.

The four composers and their songs are with Cecilia Bartoli in attentive, careful and tender hands. Her musical integrity clearly shines through on this disc. She is in glorious voice as she took me with her through all the emotions which are distilled here, going from lightness in several of these songs to the fierceness and poignancy of Arianna in Haydn's cantata. Bringing out every shade and nuance for this listener (as these songs also allow her to display the dark depths of her voice). Andras Schiff lends her a sparkling and wonderful support on piano. Singer and musician are very much in harmony here with each other.

The booklet contains information about the composers and their songs and also the texts of the songs with translations in English, French and German . I do not have a particular favourite among the songs of Cecilia's intimate Italian recital. I definitely highly recommend this excellent disc to those listeners who love Cecilia Bartoli and all of the featured composers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended to Bartoli fans 29 Oct 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This really is, as Gramophone says, a satisfying recital. In fact, it is really quite compelling, perfect for evening contemplation. Bartoli's voice sounds great, as always, and this recital demonstrates an advance in her artistry over previous efforts. Schiff plays a Bosendorfer, which sounds a bit like a fortepiano, not at all inappropriate for this repertoire of classical era composers. I enjoy its slightly woody timbre. I guess if I had any criticism, it is of Bartoli's somewhat strenuous, aspirated expression. It would be nice to hear her sing more simply and straightforwardly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better of two collections of songs in Italian. 14 Jun 2006
By B. Marold - Published on
Format:Audio CD
'The Impatient Lover' sung by Cecilia Bartoli is a collection of 18th and 19th century songs in Italian which were written by the predominantly German composers, Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, and Hayden. Oddly, this is very seriously a better, or at least a more enjoyable collection, to my ear, than the 'If you Love Me' collection of Italian songs written by Italians, including Scarlatti, Caldera, and Vivaldi. And, neither collection of Italian songs is as interesting as Mme. Bartoli's collection of French love songs, 'Chant D'Amore'. All are done on London, but with three different accompaniests. I think the French material is just better than the Italian.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cecilia Bartoli's Magic Performance 24 Jun 2012
By Vera Kolb - Published on
Format:Audio CD
The angelic voice of Cecilia Bartoli made a difference in my life. There are three performers who are so outstanding that I place them above all. They are: Leonid Kogan (violin), Garrick Ohlsson (piano) and Cecilia Bartoli (mezzo-soprano). In my imagination they sit on the top of the musical hill and speak for the God of Music.
This recording of Cecilia Bartoli has songs of Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert and Haydn. Bartoli's voice and musical interpretation are phenomenal. Like Ohlsson and Kogan, she leaves no note behind. Each note is beautiful as itself, but they flow as a wide and power river of musical perfection of the most beautiful music humans have ever produced. She mixes drama, sweetness, softness and lyricism, and, like Ohlsson, uses her dynamic range to a great musical advantage. Her voice is like liquid silver; it trembles, vibrates, loves and caresses every note, and creates the musical wonder that is unsurpassed.
There is no question in my mind that Cecilia Bartoli is the musical treasure of this world. Look her up on the you tube also, to see her expressive face which complements her beautiful voice so well.
This CD is a must! Five stars!
