5.0 out of 5 stars voice of an angel 16 Mar 2010
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I heard one track of this album on Radio 3 and fell in love with this wonderful soloist. Her voice is pitch perfect and so sweet and every track on the album is such a joy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb singing 21 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
This CD was recommended to me by a musician. In his words:'if you find it, just buy it because you won't regret it'. The singing is superb and I thoroughly recommend this CD to people who are interested in listening to a great art song performer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful. 22 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a gorgeous disc. The programme is wide ranging and suits Auger's voice to perfection. The piano accompaniment of Baldwin is superb. The whole thing is a joy. If you don't have anything sung by Arleen Auger in your collection then I'd recommend you purchase this disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden Treasure 3 Nov 2003
By John D. - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This recording is possibly one of the best examples of beautiful singing one will ever find. The repertoire, the artfulness, the line and the sheer beauty of Miss Auger's voice is a rare find. I've just recently purchased another copy as I loaned mine to a friend who begged to keep it! One note on the cover - this new cover art seems to imply this CD is some light version of 1970's Montovani romance music. Nothing could be further from the truth. Though the previous jacket (a photo of Miss Auger on pale pink) did look dated, I hope the next pressing of this (& I'm sure they'll be many more to come!) will give this collection the class packaging it deserves. This is a collector's item. Enjoy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful memorial to the art of a great soprano. 9 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
The late and much-missed American soprano Arleen Auger made many beautiful recordings, but none more lovely than this extraordinarily wide-ranging song recital. What other singer could move effortlessly through such a program, encompassing as it does everything from German lieder (Schubert, Schumann, Strauss), French chansons, and Spanish and Brazilian songs, all the way to numbers from Noel Coward's "Conversation Piece" and Lerner and Loewe's "Camelot"? Auger finds the appropriate style for every piece--bewitchingly seductive in Ovalle's langruous "Azulao," wittly pointed in Mahler's beguiling "Liebst du um Schonheit," darkly impassioned in Donaudy's storm-tossed "O del mio amato ben," exquisitely limpid in Britten's heart-stopping arrangement of "The Salley Gardens" (taken at an awe-inspiringly slow speed), and utterly without even a hint of condescension in the Broadway show tunes. And throughout this stylistic and linguistic Babel of a recital, Auger's characteristically ravishing tone remains absolutely pure and untroubled. Accompanied as she is with unfailing pianistic imagination and virtuosity by Dalton Baldwin--and recorded with you-are-there digital realism by Delos--Auger has given us a CD that is not only a wonderful memorial to her incomparable vocal art but also a joyful confirmation that perfection is achievable on earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of its kind! 24 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I'm 15, and never really was one for classical vocal music. But when I heard Arleen Augers sing I was walking on a cloud! It's absolutely beautiful. The pure, rich quality of her voice is something unmatched, and her choice in music is breathtaking. I would implore anyone and everyone to add this CD to their collection. It's sheer perfection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, sensitive music 14 Jun 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
So first of all, ignore the cheesy cover art and album title. This is a beautiful collection of songs, beautifully performed. Since I concur with the other reviews that laud Auger's performance (though don't forget the accompanist Dalton Baldwin, who is also outstanding), I'll add only the comment that there is a certain melancholy surrounding a lot of the songs and performances that (a) I find haunting and appealing, and (b) you would never know simply from looking at the album.
The performance of "Why, No One to Love" is worth the price of admission alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent- You must own this! 29 Feb 2000
By essmac - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I wish I could give this recording more than 5 stars. Auger's voice is stunning- so touching, so expressive, so moving. Every song is bouyed up by her astounding artistry: sophisticated, intelligent phrasing, miracles of breath control, not one opportunity for telling expressiveness missed, every gesture full of communicative meaning. Her voice is such an amazing instrument- so angelic, penetrating to the center of your heart. Her death was a tragedy for anyone who loves music, and it is impossible to hear the eligiac songs without feeling a sense of loss. Thank God we have her recordings. This will become one of your favorites of all time.
