Customer Review

on 9 June 2010
As one would expect from Archiv, this is a well recorded disc of Handel arias. Unfortunately Ms Kozena, for all the loveliness of her voice, lacks the final measure of italianateness with words sounding thickset and her deliberate accentuations of 'r's hardly offering compensation. Even more disturbing are the English arias where her diction lacks clarity and the words slip into sludge. If you are one of those who believes that opera is just about the music since the words are inaudiable anyway then this probably will not bother you much. But Handel's vocal lines definitely deserve better.
