Notes & Reviews:

Richard Strauss once was quoted saying, "The human voice is the most beautiful instrument of all, but it is the most difficult to play." Contained here are antiquity's greatest arias paired with the some of the world's most skilled vocalists. Including works by Mozart, Verdi, Tosti and Bizet , this album is selective in its assortment of popular opera scenes and arias. Featuring the voices of Ruggero Raimondi, Emil Tchakarov and Claudio Scimone, this is an album that Strauss himself would call both beautiful and awe-inspiring.
