Format:Audio CD
This kind of release gets under my skin in so many ways that I perhaps sometimes fail to appreciate the singing itself, so let me start by stipulating that Joyce DiDonato is a fine singer. What isn't so evident on a release like this is the fact that she's a fine singing actress -- her Elvira in the Keenlyside "Don Giovanni" (on DVD) is as good as it gets, and her Rosina in "Barbiere" is a delight. The voice itself has a lovely quality without being particularly characterful, to my ears -- so if you buy this, play it three or four songs at a time. It is basically a collection made up of selections from earlier collections, and it has the blandness that one often finds in a sequence of solos recorded as "greatest hits" rather than as parts of a developing dramatic structure. The excerpts here from complete opera recordings are more vividly done than the excerpts from the collections. One notices too a different sound-picture -- not that that's bad, except in the case of the Heggie ("Dead Man Walking"), where the voices sound a bit veiled in what, I guess, was a recording of a live performance. I also find it irritating that no texts are provided -- many of the selections here are not nearly as well known as "La donna e mobile," and the listener needs the text and a few words about the dramatic situation to orient him or her properly to what's being sung. I assume that DiDonato fans already have the individual collections from which so many of these numbers come, and these collections do provide texts and information. Given that the likely purchaser of this set is probably less familiar with the music, it would seem that texts would be especially useful here. I know . . . costs. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent range of music 7 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a splendid collection of Joyce DiDonato's recordings. There are wonderful interpretations of Handel and Mozart together with popular pieces from Rodgers and Hammerstein. DiDonato is that rare singer these days a mezzo-soprano with a superb lower range. The recording quality enhances the fine singing.

Never heard of her before the Last Night of the Proms. Stunned by the quality of her voice. Bought this as a reminder. Her voice and the record are outstanding.

The more I hear her voice the more I love it. I am not an opera fan but love the female voice especially this one! I am completely blown away by Miss DiDonato's voice and her choice of repertoire. UTTERLY SUBLIME MUSIC MAKING. Thank you Miss D.
