After listening to this CD I have come to this conclusion--- Kiri Te Kanawa was delightful in all of her selections. I am glad that I purchased it and I recommend it highly to all opera lovers. You wont be disappointed and you certainly get more than your moneys worth. Excellent!!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a surprise!!! 21 Feb 2004

When I read the only review for this CD I was curious to hear what singer could be rated so badly so I listened to the samples and lo and behold it was none other than Kiri Te Kanawa one of my favorite divas. If all of the other selections are as satisfying as the samples then I am getting a bargain. This is one CD I cannot wait to hear in its entirety. Too bad the music teacher has a tin ear and so sad for his students. I think everyone should buy this CD. Buy!Buy!Buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Heroines not heroic 16 July 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
O mio babbino caro was forced, like someone trying to sing to an audience instead of her father. Ms. Kanawa must have had some travel issues while making this album, her heart was not with her the day she recorded O mio babbino caro. The words were clear, but not heartfelt. I recommend this project to anyone doing a vocal comparison.
Senza mamma, o bimbo is more heartfelt, or more convincing. There are some really good performances on this project. The edge is missing, the dynamic range is suppressed. I cannot blame Mr. Puccini so someone must be at the bottom.
I was enjoying Si, mi chiamano Mimi and then noticed that Ms. Kanawa was taking a break from the singing.
Richard Leech does a fine job of Rodolfo in O soave fanciulla, Ms. Kanawa's edge hasn't recovered here either. Perhaps they should have had Cristina Gallardo-Domas be Mimi from track 5 as well as she did track 6. I did like the quietness of Ms. Kanawa's parts but the feeling is not there.
I have come to enjoy this CD more as I listened to it after the fifth time. I still notice the flaws, but I guess I have just become more sympathetic.
It seems I have run out of space to continue further...you'll hear from me again when my luck of the draw makes me do a review.

1.0 out of 5 stars Puccini's Heroines: The Power of Love 11 Jan 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!!! The only good singing is from the 4 singers listed on the cover and Richard Leach who is not listed on the cover, yet they only sing 1 piece each and credit is not given on the CD as to which piece they are singing. This site shows which pieces they are.
Ken Nagano and his Lyon Opera Orchesta uses a singer who is the worst singer I have heard in a long time. And she sings 13 (THIRTEEN!!!) of the selections. And if you notice this singer is not even named here or on the CD. TOO EMBARRASING!!!!!! I plan on letting my students listen to this recording in relation to how NOT to sound. BOO......... Two thumbs DOWN!!!!!!!!
