Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gösta Winbergh's operatic recordings have hitherto largely been of Mozart—the Drottningholm Cosi fan tutte (L'Oiseau-Lyre), the latest Karajan Don Giovanni (DG) and Solti's recent Entführung (Decca). Barbara Bonney's appearances have mainly been in supporting roles; but here she proves herself well worthy of prima donna status. Indeed it is she that I find the more attractive of the two. Adina's opening cavatina is done with a delightful chuckle in the voice, and yet with splendid agility and a ravishing final note... With the Belcore and Dulcamara we come to more familiar names in Weikl and Panerai. The former gives, as ever, a cleanly sung and commanding performance; but it is Panerai who provides, for me, the major delight of Read more the recording. Dulcamara's "Udite, udite, o rustici" is as splendidly athletic, as richly comic, and altogether as superbly sung as any I have ever heard...
