Notes and Editorial Reviews



Diana Damrau's vivid stage presence proves she can make a dramatic impact on disc, too

So many coloratura sopranos over the decades have achieved stratospheric vocal gymnastics at the expense of colour and vocal personality but Diana Damrau is a thrilling exception. Diamond-etched high runs are blended with a womanly, soulful middle register. And she is an impassioned vocal actress, as committed to the Salieri arias in this fabulous selection as to the Mozarts.

-- Gramophone [3/2008]
