5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful sound 26 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful collection of Mozart pieces. Just concentrating on 3 operas: Giovanni,Figaro and Cosi plus a number of lesser known pieces D'Arcangelo shows the fabulous timbre to his voice that is like dark bitter chocolate,wonderful phrasing and voice control. What is particularly pleasing is the orchestral accompaniment which is subdued and almost ethereal,never strident,merely THERE, giving D'Arcangelo's voice the starring role. A very pleasing collection indeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great voice to listen to 4 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A Guinness of a voice - rich body and a creamy top.

Perhaps the very lowest part of the range needs to develop and the vocal characterisations are a shade the same (reviews of whole-opera performances seem to suggest that in the opera-house this may be different) but a most enj0oyable show-case disc.

3.0 out of 5 stars He has the voice, the looks...the test is now on interpretative skills? 6 Oct 2011
By A. F. S. Mui - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have been listening to this album 'on and off' for a couple of months by now.
On and off, because it never enticed me to sit down and listen to the entirety at one go.
Is the voice not good? Nay - the voice is good enough, if not outright the most burnished low male voice now singing.
Is the technique problematic? No such thing! The vocal technique is very secure and rock solid. The singer knows almost exactly how to modulate the voice to 'fit into the score'. I say fit into the score rather than 'express the music'.
That lies the only, yet important problem with this album - throughout the tracks, we hear an impeccable vocal demonstration of Mozart's famous arias, but we do not hear expressive singing.
All that can be said of this CD is that it is a suave rundown of the different arias; that's all.
Is D'Arcangelo's Mozart bland? Apparently they aren't. He is fully capable to use different tone colors to depict differing moods.
The only thing is that his singing is not committed - he sings cautiously, faithfully, yet he isn't 'in' the characters - Don Giovanni sounds like Leporello; Gugliemo cannot be differed from Figaro, and still more, the Comte Almaviva has no 'face', be it in the recitative or aria.
Worst is that D'Arcangelo isn't one bit assisted by Noseda and his orchestra. There is no attempt to depict the characters in the arias, be it in the music or in the singing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Success on Every Level 20 Sep 2011
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Italian 42 year old bass baritone Ildebrando D'Arcangelo is capturing the attention of both the ears of music lovers and the eyes of his adoring fans. He is a surly, handsome, commanding presence on stage and is also a brilliant actor: currently he is appearing in the Los Angeles Opera production of 'Così fan tutte' where he is clearly the star of the opera cast - and a strong cast it is! D'Arcangelo possess a rich, burnished dark-hued voice that is large enough to fill an opera house while being agile enough to make him one of the better Mozartean singers of the day.

On this generous recording D'Arcangelo is supported by the Orchestra del Teatro Regio di Turino conducted by Gianandrea Noseda and the marriage is a solid one. While most music lovers who approach this CD to judge the talent of D'Arcangelo will rely on his renditions of the arias from the operas Le Nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni, and Così fan tutte - arias he has sung on stage and has triumphed in opera houses across Europe - the true test of his gift is more defined in his choice to include concert arias of Mozart. Three fine ones are represented here: Alcandro, lo confesso, K.512, Mentre ti lascia, o figlia, K. 513, and Per questa bella mano, K.612. In these tricky arias the singer must relay on brilliant technique to bring focus to a brief story and D'Arcangelo sings these exceptionally well.

But of course his stage presence and acting skills are immediately apparent in the opera arias. He is an electrifying Don Giovanni and as is apparent currently on the local stage his Guglielmo in Così fan tutte is as fine a singing venture as it is a depiction of the character's personality. His voice ascends and descends the scale with pristine precision, always maintaining the delicacy of Mozart's lines and never pushing the voice to uncomfortable levels. He simply has it all and this CD is one of the finer solo recitals released this year. Grady Harp, September 11

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing and Often Powerful 10 July 2013
By Columba - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I wish I could give this recording 4.75 stars, but I'll give it the full five because despite a few glitches, it's a performance worth listening to repeatedly. According to the excellent booklet accompanying the disc, which gives historical notes along with the full text and English translations of the selections, D'Arcangelo took on the recording both as an act of homage to his ideal composer and as a challenge to his own expanding vocal range. He also, he says, has analyzed both the characters and the musical context for his way of performing the roles, and I believe he's added some interesting nuances to them. His "Madamina, il catalogo," for example, presents a more flippant and insinuating Leporello than the ones I've heard before, whereas his "Se vuol ballare, signor contino" adds a certain touch of genuine annoyance to the humor. As for his "Non piu andrai," I find it absolutely hilarious -- not just the words, but the voice in the music. The "Cosi fan tutti" arias are also exciting, and the orchestra under the leadership of Gianandrea Noseda is just plain splendid.

The glitches I found were mostly in the lesser-known concert arias, where D'Arcangelo occasionally doesn't quite meet the "challenge" he speaks of in the liner notes. (He says, "You need a huge vocal range and considerable agility. But I love a challenge.") In one aria, for example, a full-octave ascending line which repeats once should sound like an effortless flight of sound, but it turns out more like a labored dash up a flight of stairs. In two of the arias, D'Arcangelo has trouble with a few of the lowest notes -- although, ironically, in the aria that he claims as the biggest challenge for low notes, "Per questa bella mano" ("It has notes so deep that it pushes the singer to the edge of his voice," he says), he manages those deep notes without any audible effort at all, and produces great beauty from them.

These are minor glitches, though, and I've been listening to the disc over and over, not just to enjoy the gorgeousness of D'Arcangelo's voice, but also to catch the nuances that he's put into the more familiar arias. (Here it's very helpful to read his liner-notes musing about the characters, to see what he's done with his speculations.) And, as I've said, the orchestra is splendid and the liner notes thought-provoking. To tell the truth, I'd ordered the disc before reading the negative reviews here and in an old issue of Opera News, and when the disc arrived, I almost put it aside in my "oops, I made a mistake" pile without listening to it. I'm glad I didn't do that. I keep going back and listening again and again, almost like dipping back into a box of chocolates that one has sworn to leave alone for a while. This is definitely a collection worth adding to one's collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sleepy renditions of favorite Mozart arias, almost devoid of humor and character 28 Sep 2011
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'd nominate Ildebrando d'Arcangelo for having the most romantic name in opera, and his solid bass-baritone and acting ability have ushered him into the world's leading opera houses. The voice is smoothly produced, very even in tone, and warm in timbre. In fact, the lack of roughness makes Leporello's Catalogue Aria a strange opener, all the more because d'Arcangelo is slow and rather grave in an aria that is supposed to be rollicking, satiric, and funny. Not here, not even a little bit. that implies a drastic limitation in the singer's ability to create characters with his voice. The impression of sobriety is reinforced by Figaro's angry aria against the Count in Nozze di Figaro, here delivered with not much anger and no craftiness at all.

Figaro returns for the sure-fire Non piu andrai, and although I admire the singing per se, there's not even a slight attempt to give us the teasing mockery that Figaro uses affectionately against Cherubino. If humor isn't d'Arcangelo's strong suit, perhaps suave seduction is, so we get Don Giovanni's serenade, and I must say that it's the dullest I've ever heard, delivered in a slightly woolly tone without charisma. Dutifully I trudged to the end of this uninspired album, wondering how DG came to release it. Is this a so-called barihiunk who succeeds onstage largely by his looks? He certainly has a voice, but the way he uses it induces sleep.

Everything is right on this cd. Ildebrando D'Arcangelo (that name!!) is so mellow and dramatic and never pushes his instrument, very heavy when necessary, low notes are frightening..Mozart never heard it like this!
