The Penguin Guide
Cecilia Bartoli made this recording when she was still in her early 20s, a mezzo with a rich, vibrant voice who not only copes brilliantly with the technical demand but who also gives winningly provocative characterization. Like conductor, Bartoli is wonderful at bringing out the fun.
