An incredible artist of our time.
Great arias sung by a great soprano.
I look forward to more of here performances here in the UK over the years.
I highly recommend this recording.

The is no doubting the great talent of Diana Damrau and she has ALL the notes to sing this lovely music. But she does not have the vocal weight to characterise these Mozart ladies to the necessary degree. She is a truly magnificent Queen of Night as evidenced on her earlier disc and on DVD particularly the version from the Royal Opera, Covent Garden. I did, however, like her Blonchen aria and the Servilia was good too as were the concert arias. Why not include some of Ilia's music or even Zerlina's arias on this disc rather than those of Donna Anna or Elvira both of whom are superbly delineated in Mozart's music but require bigger voices deliver the necessary characterisation? It seems that the music chosen demands more than she has in her current vocal apparatus lovely though it is. In my view it would have been wiser to feature Ismene's music rather than Aspasia's drammatic first aria (Mitridate). I recently heard Damrau as Gretel at ROH and she was excellent, a total joy. Lets hope she is not being ill-advised towards bigger roles at this stage..... there will surely be ample opportunity at some future date to consider these.

I can see that I am going to be out on a limb compared with previous reviewers on Amazon.com - but I notice that an Amazon.fr reviewer thinks similarly to me, so here goes anyway:

I was looking forward to reviewing this disc, having been impressed by Diana Damrau when I heard her live as Zerbinetta and, like everyone else, wowed by her Queen of the Night on DVD and "YouTube", where her rendition of that fiendish aria has had hundreds of thousands of hits. She has since declared that she will no longer be performing that rôle, but, judging by this collection of arias, I wonder if that decision is premature.

Undeniably, Damrau is hugely talented: lapidary precision in coloratura, no hint of shrillness in her top notes, absolute security of intonation, an assured stage presence and considerable personal charms - she has many sterling qualities which combine to make her a gifted singer of the modern type that productions worldwide cry out for. She is, nonetheless, still a relatively young and inexperienced singer and I wonder if she has not allowed herself to be pushed too soon into assuming the grander kind of Mozartian rôles to which her voice is not (yet?) ideally suited. I need to be specific if I am to make my case, and I am aware that some will think that I am being unnecessarily harsh, but while listening to the majority of the arias she undertakes here, I inevitably found myself comparing her with earlier, favourite artists, as I felt that there was something wanting.

Let's start with Pamina's aria from "Die Zauberflöte.

Another stunner of an album by this cult soprano from Germany. Every track is a highlight, and a showcase of her amazing vocal ability. Buy it as soon as you can...
