5.0 out of 5 stars If Puccini could have chosen a soprano......... 23 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am sure if Puccini was alive today he would chose Angela Gheorghiu to interpret his work. This CD, remastered from the original tapes is an excellent selection from the popular and less popular Puccini operas.

Sound quality is very good, like many modern recordings you may need to crank the volume up more. I never owned the original CD so cannot comment if the remastering makes any difference. It is just a very well engineered CD that highlights Ms Gheorghiu's beautiful voice. While a couple of the tracks were not for me <skip> 16 of the 18 tracks were to my liking and made this a very enjoyable listening experience.

If you already own the original disc I don't know if it is worth updating, perhaps download one MP3 track and have a listen.

I can recommend this CD not only to fans of Ms Gheorghiu but also to any fan of opera.

Angela Gheorghiu once again brings new light to many of the standard Puccini arias, a delight to listen to on a long weekend with no distractions.
