It was with Rossini's La Cenerentola in 1993 that Cecilia had her first great success and her skill in tackling the Rossini repertoire is expertly exemplified here. Every note is perfectly placed and timed and the speed of her colaratura runs is astounding - just listen to the last few minutes of Bel Raggio Lusinghier from Semiramide as an example.
Often accused as having a somewhat frenetic style, Cecilia shows here that she is capable of singing with tenderness and emotion as well as with gusto and passion, producing a well-rounded CD from various Rossini operas, most of which are, unfortunately, little heard of nowadays.
For any fan of Rossini and of great singing, this CD is an absolute must. The arias here are prime evidence as to why Cecilia Bartoli has become the leading, most popular mezzo of the last ten years, and sets the target for which all others must aim!
I am a big fan of everything Bartoli does - she is certainly one of the best mezzo's in the past decade. She has great control of voice and though may not be the most beautiful it has grace and warmth.
Cecila has done many fine discs and this ranks right up there with the best of what she's done.
A must for Rossini and Bartoli fans alike. For everyone else you're missing out if you don't try it.
