Notes & Reviews:

Considered an outlier in the history of the twentieth century operatic theater for her comparatively small discography, the Romanian soprano Virginia Zeani was nonetheless internationally acclaimed for her performances during a career of over twenty years, with her extraordinary stage presence and strikingly golden coloratura voice. The third CD of the collection "Il Mito dell'Opera" is dedicated to Zeani and features the arias from the roles that were a prominent part of her repertoire. From her signature role, Violetta of La Boheme which marked her 1948 debut through the Verdi heroines which allow the full bloom of Zeani's acting and singing abilities this collection is a valuable addition to the operatic diaspora providing vivid insight into the singer who influenced many of the generation that followed including Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Angela Gheorghiu among others and was deeply respected by her peers which included Maria Callas and Dame Joan Sutherland.
