5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music sung beautifully
Juan Diego Flórez's French disc is a delight from start to finish. There is a good mixture of well-known and lesser known arias in this selection and each of them is sung with style by Flórez. The aria from Le Postillon de Longjumeau, by Adolphe Adam, who also wrote Cantique de Noel/O Holy Night, is very enjoyable. Among my other favourites are the arias...

1.0 out of 5 stars a disagreeable experience
A very disagreeable experience, and I shall be trading my copy in. The problem is that he just yells every item. That might be all right in the opera house, but not on the CD player at home. I feel very misled by favourable reviews here and elsewhere.

The aria from Le Postillon de Longjumeau, by Adolphe Adam, who also wrote Cantique de Noel/O Holy Night, is very enjoyable. Among my other favourites are the arias from Les Troyens and Lakmé. Overall, then, a beautiful disc and well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Addictive, 15 April 2014
By

This review is from: L'Amour (Audio CD)
This new CD, his first for 4 years, is not what I expected (managed to get a copy some weeks back) - the old Florez is still there with his agility and fearless high notes but the voice is now warmer and rounder. Good selection of material from French opera of 1800s, I liked the pieces from Adam (Postillon de Lonjumeau), Offenbach (La Belle Helene -yaeh!!), Boieldieu (Viens, gentile dame) and his 'Pourquoi me reveiller' is as good as Pavarotti's. To get an appreciation of not just his beautiful sound but the mastery of his instrument – have a listen from about 3:20 on the Donizetti La Favorite track, just before the old priest comes back in – it’s really quite amazing. So yes he probably IS the best legato tenor alive at the moment with a voice that is just a gift for all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Juan Diego Florez - I love you!, 4 April 2014

What a great voice. I have nearly every recording made by JDF and have heard him three times live - once in recital! This CD is a wonderful addition to my collection. It may be the quality of the recording, but it seems his voice is getting warmer as he ages. The songs on this CD are difficult, providing Juan a chance to display all the qualities of his wonderful voice. Bravo!
