5.0 out of 5 stars Puccini as it should be sung!, 27 Feb 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Puccini Arias (Audio CD)
This first effort by Jose Cura is exceptional. For those who love Puccini, he sings it as it should be sung. Plenty of 'macho' when it should be, yet tender and gentle in the more sentimental arias. You can tell this is one of Cura's early recordings, as he has not yet developed the full range of emotions as are shown later in his 'Verdi Arias'. None the less it is excellent. Unusually it deals with the Puccini operas in reverse order. This means you get Nessun Dorma first!! but have to wait for what I consider the best part - Manon Lescaut.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, 18 Dec 2012

This review is from: Puccini Arias (Audio CD)
I don't believe there's a finer recording of these works, and I don't believe Jose Cura will top some of these performances. Powerful stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jose Cura: 'Puccini Arias', 15 Feb 2013

This review is from: Puccini Arias (Audio CD)
A most pleasing collection, exceptionally well sung and with his own personal touches. Individually, the renditions (while bettered by many of the recordings of great tenors) have a lovely impact on the listener. This is one of the best collections of the very modern tenors I have heard. The excellent sound quality is also evident on all tracks. A 'must buy'.
