Notes and Editorial Reviews

Decca's first-ever compilation devoted to the two composers most closely associated with Kiri Te Kanawa: Mozart & Richard Strauss.

Selections include arias from operas by both composers which Kiri has sung on stage as well as concert arias and songs she has featured in concert.

She is accompanied by two of her greatest musical mentors - Sir Georg Solti - in his dual role as conductor and pianist - and Sir Colin Davis (with whom she first sang the role of the Countess in Le nozze di Figaro at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, in 1971).
