Notes & Reviews:

Danielle DeNiese made her Met debut as Barbarina in 'Le nozze di Figaro'. At just 19, it was already clear that she was destined to be a major Mozart singer, with her extraordinary sensitivity to language and ability to communicate emotion. This recording of Mozart arias is thus a natural follow-up to the remarkable Handel album. Her partnership here with Sir Charles Mackerras lends her the wise and authoritative support of one of the great modern heroes of Mozart performance style and practice. It's an added bonus that in the only duet on this album - "La ci darem la mano" from Don Giovanni - Danielle is reunited after ten years with the great Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel, who had also been in the Figaro in which she made her Met debut.

BBC Music Magazine
... her tone is delightfully fresh and personal throughout the range, and she negotiates the coloratura with precision and a sense of musical direction. Throughout, there's an impression of her interpretative intelligence at work, as she makes each item her own. Superior accompaniments from Charles Mackerras and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment...

The Guardian
With Charles Mackerras and the OAE providing unfailingly stylish accompaniment, there's a bit of everything here...De Niese glitters and charms as Zerlina.
