Notes & Reviews:

Cecilia Bartoli is loved the world over for vocal fireworks and spectacular coloratura, but she is also adored for her spine-tingling pianissimi and her ability to shape endless, velvety phrases. For the first time, this release will focus on the irresistibly sensual side of Cecilia Bartoli's art. It has been conceived as a popular "mood" or lifestyle compilation - presenting quieter arias showcasing Cecilia's vocal beauty, sensuality and emotion. "Sospiri" contains favourite arias by Mozart and Handel, bel canto jewels by Bellini and Rossini and treasures by Vivaldi as well as music which Cecilia Bartoli has "rediscovered" on her recent record-breaking solo albums.

"With her voice, as colorful as a whole orchestra, its unique expression and its untamed temperament Cecilia Bartoli has once again enchanted the music world... "Sospiri" is a new gem, mounted simply and intimately." -Deutschland Radio Kultur

BBC Music Magazine
she attacks the music with punch and personality. The pieces have been well-chosen to demonstrate her extraordinary range...Even if she plays second fiddle to Pavarotti in the Cherry Duet from Mascagni's L'amico Fritz, she distinguishes herself here, too
