Fabulous Album - 'Du bist die Welt für mich' is the Star,
This review is from: Heart's Delight - The Songs Of Richard Tauber (Audio CD)
Using the latest technology Beczala sings a unique version of 'Du bist die Welt für mich' perfectly with Richard Tauber and for this alone the album is worth 5 Stars.
The careful selection of popular repertoire will I think appeal to most Tauber fans and those who perhaps know of Tauber but are not as familiar with his recordings. with the operettas and songs of Lehár, Kálmán, Stolz, Erwin and others and collaborations with guest artists like Soprano Anna Netrebko and mandolinist Avi Avital. Piotr Beczala interprets these songs beautifully and intelligently, playing to his strengths with a colour of sound and purity of tone that is matched by his ability to project 'theatre' (does that make sense to anyone other than me?) into each song but remaining fully in control of each one.
I am reviewing this based on the FLAC 24bit 96kHz Studio Master Version from linnrecords dot com not the CD Version. I am sure the CD version will be excellent based on the high quality of the Studio master recording. The Studio master also has an extra track - Brunetki, blondynki made famous by the well known Polish singer of the 20's and 30's, Jan Kiepura.
