Product description

GHEORGHIU ANGELA

Amazon.co.uk

Angela Gheorghiu Live, here, means what it says: it seems like half the disc is given over to applause and you get to hear her performance as it comes, including tranches of distinctly questionable intonation that studio retakes would have tided away. What's more, the music--mostly short, sharp items of standard repertory--has been chosen to demonstrate a broader stylistic range than Gheorghiu can effectively deliver. Her uncertain, watery, unidiomatic readings of "Lascia ch'io pianga" and "Porgi amor" wouldn't win her a part in any Handel or Mozart opera I was casting. But by the time she gets to Massenet ("Adieu notre petit table") and Charpentier ("Depuis le jour") she's on more customary ground. And there she shines, spectacularly, with the pliant, pleading, gossamer-light eloquence that made her such a memorable Violetta at Covent Garden back in the mid-1990s. Beware: there isn't any Verdi on this disc, but there are plenty of other favourites ("Casta Diva", "O mio babbino caro"). It ends with a disarmingly fierce encore of "I could have danced all night" designed to hammer home the tough, resourceful strength beneath the surface of that fragile, cashmere-soft vocal exterior.--Michael White
