Notes and Editorial Reviews

Cecilia Bartoli has a terrific voice: a gloriously rich mezzo, full-bodied and exhilaratingly abandoned in the risks she takes in the coloratura passages. That this recital consists mainly of familiar arias from traditionally soprano roles (Fiordiligi, Despina, Susanna, Countess, Elvira, Zerlina) testifies to her astonishing versatility.
