4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mart TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Aug. 2008
Format: Audio CD
The presentation is sumptuous, from the front cover showing Renee in typical early 1900's dress, to the album's triple gatefold cover presenting the CD and an extensive 80 page illustrated booklet with full lyrics (translated to English) and some precious photographs of the singers to whom this album is dedicated.

It's another Renee personal project, this time a tribute to the soprano divas famous around the 1870's to 1920's who are in need of someone to remind today's listeners and writers that great singers were around long before our current generation of opera superstars. The only reason we forget is because those divas of yesterday are preserved only as pictures and words in the history books, while today's artists are able to leave future generations with recordings which will enable a more valid discussion on the merits of their vocal ability.

Renee revives the sopranos of yesterday, Geraldine Farrar, Maria Jeritza, Mary Garden, Emmy Destinn, Magda Olivero, and while the music choices are not the most familiar, Renee's intentions are admirable.

This is the best colection of arias she ever done. Very interesting choice,and beautiful done. Her singing is absolutelly spectacular, just spectacular. Chech and russin arias are so good sung with so much beauty and power in the voice that those must be heard several times to beleave. Briliant, briliant...By this CD.

Format: Audio CD
Voices don't come much more rapturous, powerful, creamy and expressive than this. Renee Fleming is now at her absolute peak; her voice retains its tonal beauty but has acquired more edge and vibrancy, too, to counteract the old accusations that it was all bland beauty and no feeling. If some of her embellishments and apparent liberties with the score - for example, particularly at the end of the "Vissi d'arte" - seem a little mannered or excessive, there is no doubting her desire to communicate a true depth of emotion and re-invent what can sometimes seem, by repetition in recital albums, rather hackneyed arias, such as "Tacea la notte". I don't think that the inclusion of the Gounod aria was a wise choice, despite her accomplishment; the voice is now too grand and Straussian an instrument to accommodate easily its demands and the subsequent aria from "Die Liebe der Danae" comes as a sublime relief. Here we find her back on home territory - but you can't knock her desire to formulate as eclectic a programme as possible. She certainly refutes the charge that she is only interested in pure sound, both by her treatment of the more familiar arias and by her inclusion of comparative novelties like the two Korngold pieces - which are stunning. The top notes are all in place, the pianissimi breathtaking, the lower register refulgent, the middle of the voice wonderfully rich. I had the pleasure of knowing Renee when she was still a student in New York City, shortly to return to her studies in Germany, and she was charming, open, modest, honest and utterly dedicated to her art. I believe that she has retained these qualities even as the world's foremost soprano, with the world at her feet. Clearly everything she does with her voice is to enhance the music, not for self-aggrandisement. Just listen with an open mind and revel in the sound she makes.

I love Renee Fleming......have several CD's but this one is harsh and screechy!
I am SO disappointed. She slides to the notes, screeches at times and worse.....The thing I love about her singing is the emotion, the compassion she feels in the music oozes from her normally. This .....a definite NO. Awful at times. It is as tho' it is all too much for her and she is grabbing at the notes however she can.

Please do not buy this. It will disappoint. Much better to choose the arias you love from the lists of downloads. I wanted Vissi d'arte so bought this. This rendition is NOT up to her usual standard and I will NOT be playing it anymore
