The above review from 'A CUSTOMER' relates to the Mozart arias on Erato NOT Decca which are really excerpts from her complete opera recordings. The Decca recording IS really excellent in every respect and anyone that enjoyed the various other discs (the two Rossini, Gluck, Vivaldi, Salieri etc.,.) should not hesitate to acquire it. The arias are mainly from the more popular operas and some concert arias which can be sung by a high mezzo soprano. One can hear the fun and teasing in the Zerlina arias which suit the coquettish character. However, my absolute favourite is her wonderful treatment of Vitellia's 'Non piu di fiori' from La Clemenza di Tito, a role she hasn't undertook on stage as yet but which she has all the requirements for including the solid chest register.

BUT .....avoid the Erato disc, not for Bartoli's fine singing which is top drawer, but for the poor recording quality.

I bought this CD because it contained an interesting and comprehensive selection of Mozart arias sung by Cecilia Bartoli. Although Bartoli is superb, proving herself as one of the best Mozart singers of our time, the recording itself is very poor. I was very disappointed by this recording, in which Bartoli's beautiful sound is drowned out by background noise. You have to struggle to her clearly what are fantastic performances of these arias. It has none of the quality of Bartoli's recordings with Decca. However it is perhaps worth purchasing only to hear what is in my mind, the best interpretation of "Voi che sapete " you will ever hear. Her interpretations of "Il tenero momento" and "Pupille Amante" are also excellent. It is just a shame about the quality of the recording.

The voice of Cecilia Bartoli will always be heavenly. Very good recording and very enjoyable CD.
