Notes & Reviews:

Born around 1780, Marietta Marcolini was a celebrated Italian contralto. She was so renowned for both her voice and her acting ability that Rossini wrote five parts for her between 1811 and 1814. This new release from Naive celebrates both the singer and the roles which were created for her. Featuring arias from L'Italiana in Algeri, Ciro in Babilonia, La donna selvaggia, and more, this CD is sure to delight lovers of Rossini opera.

International Record Review, March 2013
Her voice is flowing and controlled, rippling fluently and fearlessly through the fioriture with the best ... very good sound.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Hallenberg gets the full treatment here, with additional singers and chorus as needed plus some excellent accompaniments from the orchestra. Hers is a most mellifluous voice, quite personable.
