 Sumi Jo - versatile! September 17, 2012 By Tim T. (Shenton Park, WA) See All My Reviews "Sumi Jo – The Erato Recitals I am not an opera expert but I know what I like. I had Sumi Jo’s “Bel Canto” CD for a few years and the “Son vergin vezzosa” from I Puritani was my favourite. Fantastic clean high notes (there’s a good key change and then a high “D” near the end.) and really fast articulation – my lack of terminological expertise shows here – but it ticks all or most of the boxes as seen at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bel_canto So in my browsing around on You Tube, I find Sumi Jo singing “I dreamed I dwelled in marble halls” in a strange accent, poor recording - and then I find another poor recording that hints of a voice as good or better than any I ever heard – I had to find it. No luck. So when The Erato Recitals came along at Arkiv – 10 CDs – it was irresistible. The set includes - Bel Canto – Great, you know I liked it already. Others – most of it unfamiliar to me – all good, no problems with accent, notes, quality, or ability to sustain the long high ones. The overall impression was that of a singer with a capacity to do it all - old, modern, loud, soft, low, high . . . High points included “Virtuoso Arias” with the Bellini, Rossini, Verdi, Donizetti parts all lovely, but the Mozart Queen of the Night aria with high F was the stand-out. On “Only love” – lovely voice, overpowered by loud accompaniment on occasions. “Send in the Clowns”, “I dreamed I lived in marble halls” and “I still believe” were wonderful. No room for more detail – but as a computer nut with too many hobbies, I will work with my CDs coming through the headphones on for hours, noting only the very good or the very bad (Press: SKIP). The other disks – no skips, all good. Overall, Excellent value!!" Report Abuse
