Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.

“In this recital Stade focuses on two composers close to her—Rossini and Mozart in these arias from six operas, all performed with technical expertise, taste and intrepretive insight. As with all Pentatone RQR recording, the original four-tracks produce an uncommonly natural sonic picture. Complete texts and translations are included.” --Robert Benson, classicalcdreview

“If you are a fan, this will self-recommend (if you don’t already own it). If you are not, this disc will demonstrate why you should be… De Waart and the Rotterdam Philharmonic provide attractive, lively, and well-characterized accompaniments; PentaTone supplies
Read more texts and translations, for which one should be grateful. Most recital discs today seem to omit these. Very enthusiastically recommended.” -- Henry Fogel, FANFARE
