Notes & Reviews:

Following Sarah Connolly's series of title roles at English National Opera, Glyndebourne and New York's Metropolitan Opera in 2005, this live recital was recorded at St. John's, Smith Square, London, having been premiered at Carnegie Hall earlier in the year. Her distinctive, intelligent, warm, bright sounding mezzo-soprano will be enjoyed by her growing 'army' of fans in this rich romantic repertoire.
