Superb album from the Worlds leading Mezzo,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Romantique (Audio CD)
Worth the wait after DG delayed the release date. Shame Amazon couldn't get a pre-order out on the release date.
Elina Garanca has built on her previous releases and this is a worthy addition by the World's leading mezzo soprano. Her voice transcends the repertoire with ease, her velvety smooth as silk tones bring the music to life,from the very popular and well known Mon coeur s'ouvre a ta voix to the less well known pieces such as the Lalo.
This album has been previewed to death with audio and video clips being promoted for months. Unlike some films where previews show all that is worth seeing,this album is much more than its previews. If you are a fan of Elina you will love this album. If however you would prefer to hear an album of more popular content you may want to try Habanera first and then come back to hear this album.
BTW well done DG for not spoiling this release with poor engineering.
