Notes & Reviews:

America's favorite soprano celebrates the red-blooded passion and drama of Italian opera with sumptuous arias by Puccini and his contemporaries - composers of the verismo style. Included in this all-new recording are some of opera's most popular melodies. From Mimi's first act aria and Liu's passionate last breath to Suor Angelica's desperate plea and Magda's revelry in La Rondine - Renee Fleming performs this deeply emotional music of love and loss with her trademark ravishing tone and dramatic intensity.

1) Puccini: Suor Angelica - Senza Mamma
2) Mascagni: Iris - Un Di Ero Piccina?
3) Puccini: La Rondine - Ore Dolci E Divine
4) Mascagni: Lodoletta - Ah Il Suo Nome...Flammen Perdonami
5) Catalani: La Wally - Ne Mai Dunque Avro Pace... Ohime!

BBC Music Magazine
At its best... verismo's emotional immediacy is a gift to a performer like Renée Fleming, her voice combining luscious tone and intensity.

Gramophone Magazine
... the feeling throughout is generous and true. Characterisation... infuses the voice without being applied like make-up. And the inclusion of some unexpected charmers - the solos from Leoncavallo's Bohème have the lilt of good operetta - is most welcome.

bbc.co.uk - Charlotte Gardner
Fleming's characterisation of these colourful heroines radiates off the recording; her voice often gasps and quivers in turmoil, with finely judged dynamics and tender little portamenti. The vocal delivery itself, despite all this drama, is technically perfect, simply delivered and clearly defined...With this recording, Fleming has more than justified her diva status.
