5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Bartoli, 9 Nov 2012

This review is from: Sospiri (Audio CD)
This collection of soft and reflective arias (available elsewhere in her catalogue) show how beautifully Ms Bartoli can leave the fireworks behind and entrance us with her gentler, but no less brilliant, style of singing. Glorious!

Superb reading of PG Wodehouse's comic masterpiece. the sheer marvellous nonsense of it all comes to sparkling life! I rate Jonathan Cecil as oojah-cum-spiff, don't you know?

Jonathan Cecil at his best reading what is probably the best PG Wodehouse novel. A glorious concoction of mishap and mayhem brought to life by a master of voice acting.

This review is from: Christmas Memories (MP3 Download)
I purchased Streisand's first Christmas recording when it came out on vinyl, and then on cassette, and then on CD. THAT record had variety, which is something this I feel has not. Purely for really die-hard followers of the lady as far as I'm concerned. AVOID!!!!

Bliss! I've reviewed other Cecil/Wodehouse audiobooks, and this ranks amongst the best. No one, but no one reads PGW like JC. Joy in the Morning, afternoon and evening...

Nobody, but nobody reads PG Wodehouse as brilliantly as did Jonathan Cecil. As with all his other audiobooks, the actor brings to life the fabulously funny world of Jeeves and Bertie Wooster. A joy from beginning to end!

All the early French hits are here, including the (then) slightly risque Java pour Petula. A must-have for all PC admirers.

Jonathan Cecil was the archetypal narrator for Wodehouse's timeless books. First rate in this and all the other talking books he did...


Mozart: Così fan tutte [IMPORT]

5.0 out of 5 stars Bartoli Shines, 29 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gorgeous recording - I have other versions of this sublime Mozart opera, but rate this above others (inc. Caballe/Baker/Cotrubus) due to Bartoli's delightful Dorabella. Okay, I'm a Bartoli fanatic, but this is utterly delightful - all of it!!!


Live At Herod Atticus  [DVD] [2004]
Live At Herod Atticus [DVD] [2004]
Dvd ~ Nana Mouskouri
Offered by Tracksounds-es
Price: £11.60

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Nana, 18 April 2012
I was lucky enough to be at Nana Mouskouri's debut London concert at the Royal Albert Hall way back in the late 1960s. That was a magical evening, but even that memory is overshadowed by this concert, her return to Greece in 1984.
The performance that night was a triumph; from the moment she swept onto the stage to ear-shattering applause, to the last notes of her final song, when the audience erupted into a storm of clapping and cheering.
The DVD (and CD) captures (nearly all) the concert - Leonard Cohen's 'The Guests' was an emotional triumph not included here - and I recommend both to anyone - Nana
Mouskouri at her absolute best!! PERFECTION!!!
