 Sensational October 28, 2014 By Ralph Miller (Vallejo, CA) See All My Reviews "I drifted away from opera over the years, annoyed by the tedious recitativo, the silly plots, the fat girls. Then one day over the Sirius/XM classical station we get as a part of our satellite TV subscription, I heard Eugenia Zukerman playing the aria from Mignon on this disc. Frankly, I was ravished, on the spot. I bought the disc and have never looked back. I discover new joys in it daily. There are a lot of unknown arias on this recording, unknown to me, at least, as well as some old favorites (e.g. Casta Diva); no doubt many are known to devoted opera fans; three, it’s fitting, from Die Zauberflote; none by Verdi (?). Zukerman is occasionally joined by an oboist for duets, and backed by a tasteful and skilled piano accompanist. You will not be disappointed, if you love melody. (I also had to stop calling Offenbach ‘Awfulbach’ because of this disc.) You will discover joys undreamt of until now, I guarantee it." Report Abuse
 Excellent work! March 28, 2013 By Jan R. (Alameda, CA) See All My Reviews "I have enjoyed listening to this cd. It is excellent. So much so that I am buying two more cds as gifts, because I want to share the experience of listening to such beautiful and artful playing." Report Abuse
