Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mozart: Concert Arias (Audio CD)
I have always been a huge Villazon fan and was looking forward to this release given how much I loved his Monteverdi. Unfortunately, this was most disappointing and disheartening. Villazon's voice is far from the best of health and he compensates by being very mannered in his singing, like the old 'buffo' singers of yester-year. I can find nothing to recommend about this recording and, to be honest, I can hardly believe it was allowed to be released.

What a lark. People got so used to Villazon's 'pushed singing' that for once he does not, they could not take it!

I may be mistaken, but the initials of commentator V. FH - who couldn't muster the courage to use his/her own name! - must surely mean "Very F---ing Harsh." Lighten up my friend; your next comment might just be the one that pulls you under... as in six feet under! Michael Davis
