Format: Audio CD
This is a superb compilation. It provides new listenerS with a fine indication of Ms Bonney's great artistry and refreshes the ear of the more experienced listener. There are some gorgeous tracks here taken from the back catalogue of Decca stretching back to her days recording the Mozart operas with Arnold Ostman - how refreshing to hear Mozart conducted and sung this way. An antidote to Karajan, Levine and Barenboim. We also have some tracks from her latest album, FAIREST ISLE with a simply ravishing account of Dido's Lament from Purcell's Dido and Aeneas- unusual to hear it sung by such a bright-voiced soprano but it works magnificently. Time and time again Ms Bonney ravishes the ear (I know I have used that word already, but anything else simply won't do!) There cannot have been a more perfect performance of Strauss's MORGEN than here, delicately accompanied by that Rolls Royce of pianists (Ms Bonney's words, not mine) Malcolm Martineau. The climax of this disc is a simply ecstatic performance of 'The Presentation of The Rose' from Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier with Susan Graham. After the release of Deccas STRAUSS HEROINES with Ms Bonney, Ms Fleming and Ms Graham I was very disappointed that this scene was missing. I am very glad that it was recorded and it appears here for the first time. I have nearly every performance on this disc anyway, but I shall be buying this disc in order to have these miraculous few minutes of pure heaven. Susan Graham and Barbara Bonney sing Strauss together. What could be more perfect?

I'm not sure if this is an error on the CD version of the product but I was horrified to discover that track 15 on the mp3 download skips at points... I am not sure if this was an encoding problem or whether it is a fault on the original recording. I was terribly disappointed by this, as it ruined what was up until that point a very sublime rendering of "Mir ist die Ehre widerfahren".
People wonder why piracy is a problem... I guess when you part with nearly 8 quid to discover that the commercial version of the music is corrupted, there is a certain appeal to looking elsewhere.
