Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"The seamless legato of Orfeo's "Che puro ciel", the wild, spotless fiorature of "Ti tanti palpiti" and "Cruda sorte", the lovely pianissimos of Delilah's second-act aria, the naughty attitude she presents for Urbain's aria from Les Huguenots, the head-spinning allure of Rossini's infrequently heard Canzonetta spagnuola, the booming low notes that punctuate the end of several arias, the perfectly-in-place grace notes in the allegro to "Cruda sorte", the trill that always "catches", and the sass she brings to Carmen's "Habanera" may never be equaled... A lengthy interview, audio only, from 2004 in Cardiff, is included. If you think you have a favorite bel canto mezzo other than Horne at the moment, it's time to visit her again through this DVD and see how you feel." -Classics Today (10/10)
