Product Description

Rosso is Patricia Petibon's personal selection of emotional highlights from Italian Baroque opera. Vibrantly embodying love, joy, anguish, vengeance, and murder, the \"mesmerizing\" (ClassicsToday.com) singer performs some of Handel's greatest soprano arias along with rediscovered treasures by his leading contemporaries and predecessors.\"For sheer versatility, virtuousity and vividness of characterization, this is a matchless disc\" (International Record Review) [review of Petibon's award-winning Amoureuses].

There's no doubt, judging from this disc and her other previous releases, that Ms Petibon is a phenomenal talent and that this is an interesting and vividly recorded selection of baroque arias.

So why only four stars? I felt that Petibon overdoes several arias in a way that I'm sure is not historically appropriate and on repeated listenings actually becomes quite irritating. Take the first aria which begins in a very lively manner and then ends in whispered phrases. Translate that to an actual stage performance and I'm sure no 18th century audience other than those in the front row would have heard a word! Or take track 7 in which we get several aspirated phrases in an echo-like manner and then ends on a contrived rising tone paired with a whistle!

Some of the most successful tracks on here are those by Handel who also gets the biggest share (and nothing wrong with that). The famous "Lascia Ch'io pianga" is ravishing (even if taken a little slowly), "Piangero la sorte mia" from Giulio Cesare, is most movingly done and the two arias from Alcina, "Ah mio cor" (full of impassioned singing) and the highly colourful "Tornami a vagheggiar" show just what the dissapointingly uninvolving Alcina with Alan Curtis - Handel: Alcina - could have (indeed, should have) sounded like!

Two Handel arias ("Lascia Ch'io pianga" & "Ah mio Cor") also appear on Kozena's Handel disc, "Ah mio cor" also on Archiv with Andrea Marcon -

Bought this album after seeing a video of Quando voglio on youtube and heard Patricia for the first time, since then I have completely fell in love with her style of singing and voice, never listened to a album for such long time, after 5 months am still addicted to it. Patricia is just amazing, perfectly fitting to chosen repertoire, very good orchestration and overall well mastered recording. I'm really glad I found an Artist who sings with a soul like an Artist, who puts her hart and imagination and not just performs "correctly" like a student. Rosso and Nouveau Monde are best baroque vocal albums ever!

I have heard many bad reviews on this cd, so when it showed up on my front door step i had my douts. Although i was fairly surprised when I started to lissen & was hooked. It is fair to say her interition you would not of heard when the pieces were composed but i think that i was makes the cd great. When you buy an opera cd so much of the time you buying the same piece of music with a differant singer Petibon brakes away from that & makes the music enjoyable to lissen to. It just goes to show the reviewers are'nt always right.
