Notes & Reviews:

Today's conception of bel canto is mainly founded on the beautiful and brilliant virtuoso arias of La Sonnambula, L'Elisir d'Amore, and the like; this recording introduces another, much lesser-known facet: bel canto da camera. Ariettas by two Italian 19th c. composers Mauro Giuliani and Girolamo Crescentini, neither counted among 'bel canto' greats such as Bellini and Donizetti, reveal the "subtlety of the human soul much more deeply," argue the artists, "than in the brightest operas arias."

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
This program is nice but... Amarres does have a pleasant voice, and Volta plays quite well. Volta plays quite well. All the songs are nice. Volta's playing in the two waltzes by Giuliani has some lovely phrases and is a welcome change from the rest of the program. Another exception to my complaint is in Giuliani's 'Quando Sara Quel Di', where Amarres has some lovely moments. This might be a worthwhile recording for aficionados of this literature.
