Notes & Reviews:

Andrea Bocelli is the tenor audiences love to love. His sincerity, his commitment to the music he sings, and, of course, his arresting sound and touching delivery are generously in evidence in this Carmen, conducted by Myung-Whun Chung. An outstanding cast joins Bocelli's Don Jose. Mezzo-soprano Marina Domashenko is a steamy Carmen, of whose Gypsy cigarette girl the Prague Post wrote, "This singer stuns the audience with her powerful, slightly throaty voice. She is both angry and cynical, yet extremely seductive."

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Salle Olivier Messiaen, Radio France, Paris, France (2005-06-26_2005-07-02&2005-).

The 2005 studio recording of Bizet's Carmen, performed by the Radio France Orchestre Philharmonique with soloists Andrea Bocelli, Bryn Terfel, Marina Domashenko, and Myung-Whun Chung is here abridged from its original two-CD set into a single-disc set of highlights, the duets and arias most often recalled from the work. Domashenko is powerful in the title role, and Terfel's "Toreador's Song" as Escamillo is triumphant, but Bocelli earns his top billing as Don José. The recording is worth hearing in its entirety, though this disc compresses it into the "hit" numbers that are well-known. ~ William Ruhlmann
