Notes & Reviews:

"...this stunning new disc captures Angela Gheorghiu in some big roles we would not expect her to take into her repertoire at present...it is refreshing to hear what a more focused voice can do with the earlier part of that aria ['Pace, pace']. Not just the espressive swelling at the start but the wonderfully sculpted phrasing that follows...this i a must-have disc and the decision to put Chailly at the helm puts this release into the luxury class." ***** -Portbury, BBC Magazine

BBC Music Magazine, May 2013
Gheorghiu displays her Verdian skills, her formidable technique and expressive power pushed to their limits but ultimately convincing.
