Notes and Editorial Reviews
In a biographical panorama of her career spanning 25 years, the spellbinding Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu has personally selected the scenes, arias and songs in this Autograph collection. It showcases her greatest stage roles – such as Violetta, Mimì, Tosca, Magda and Adriana Lecouvreur – and an array of heroines as diverse as Madama Butterfly, Carmen, Norma and even Turandot. These are complemented by evocative songs from Romania, a DVD of performance extracts, and opera specialist Jon Tolansky’s exclusive and illuminating audio interview with the singer.
