Notes and Editorial Reviews

Here's a delightful blend of famous operatic arias, sung in a rich, vibrant soprano by Renata Scotto, and instrumental operatic selections... It's the kind of program that might well be presented at a gala evening at the Monte Carlo Opera – stylish, familiar, entertaining. Louis Fremaux reveals clearly that he's one of Europe's mot talented young conductors, at ease in a wide range of works.
