Notes and Editorial Reviews



Pearly tone, flexible coloratura, fire and sweetness: Diana Damrau has it all

Her recent substitution for a pregnant Anna Netrebko at the Met has seen Diana Damrau’s star firmly on the rise. Which is all to the good. Because, as this selection of Mozart opera and concert arias proves once again, she yields to nobody in all-round ability – marrying a sunny, beautifully spun voice with depth of interpretation and word-craft. Stunning.

-- Gramophone [3/2009]
