In an era where moderate singers become household names through the power of the radio, espcially the light weight classical channels, It is nice to spend time listening to a voice of real quality. Cecila Bartoli is arguably one of the finest opera singers around. Her diction, sense of drama, willingness and ability to draw the listener in with her tonal range, her exquisite sense of melodic line all show her to be at the very top of the tree. This album is a selecttion of varied show pieces from across a number of musical periods. Cecilia Bartoli shows that she can meet the period, style and artistic task head on and create some magical moments. Whilst not an album exploring a particular composer or era in depth it is a must for anyone who just wants to hear singing of exceptional quality.

I knew who Cecilia Bartoli was but never reached to hear any of her recordings before this one, which I bought as an impulse only yesterday.

It's the third time I listen to it and I'm not tired of it.

Beautiful voice, fantastic control and high emotion are in these renditions. I've also found a truly wonderful "Casta Diva" that surely will be played often in parallel with the unsurpassed (for me) performance of Caballé in 1974.

Bartoli has gained, if not a new devoted fan (must listen to other recordings before that), surely a new happy and deeply moved follower.

Long-term followers might not find enough new material here that justifies the spend but I would recommend the purchase to people who, like me, doesn't have any recording from this mezzo and wants to know more of her artistry. I think it's a splendid start.

Cecilia Bartoli at her best.
I listened to this recording on KLM flight (it was part of their entertainment program) and then bought it. No regrets - this is one of the finest classical recordings you can get for the money in this world.

Format: Audio CD
The `prestige edition' of Sospiri is the one to own, with two discs being presented in a CD size hard back package comprising 54 glossy pages of track list, track notes (English, French, German), libretto of the sung text, and some lovely romantic photos of Cecilia Bartoli. The quality of presentation and detail is outstanding.

As for the choice of songs, the list pushes the boundaries with a world premiere recording and a first time on CD recording (arias by Vinci and Rossini respectively). There are many lesser known works interspersed with the familiar such as Handel's `Ombra mai fu' and `Lascia la spina', both of which are sung with a sublime mix of passion and restraint, and certainly not in the usual style associated with these baroque favourites.

Cecilia Bartoli continues to combine the unfamiliar with the popular, and performs with her usual dedicated passion and virtuoso skill which I think is becoming almost unrivalled in this generation of opera singing.

this is like drowning in chocolate, a beautiful rich voice. I love laudate dominum, and this version is divine, as is casta diva
