Notes & Reviews:

For the last 12 years, Angela Gheorghiu has been in constant demand in opera houses and concert halls around the world. So it is a surprising fact that she only made her debut at La Scala last year with a recital accompanied by pianist Jeff Cohen, now to be released on disc. If you want to hear her melt her way through glorious French chansons, or sparkle with brilliance in bel canto by Donizetti and Verdi, it's a must-buy. Gheorghiu's recital falls into four sections. She begins with a selection of arie antiche, continues into the bel canto and then French repertoire, and finishes with pieces from her native Romania.

Gramophone Magazine
It's the Verdi group that is the heart of the first half. "In solitaria stanza", with its main theme closely resembling "Tacea la notte" from Il trovatore, must rank as one of the loveliest things she has recorded. ... the Massenet "Elégie"... benefits from Gheorghiu's operatic experience: here are words and music given equal importance to make a miniature drama. ...throughout the recital, Jeff Cohen provides a sensitive and idiomatic accompaniment. The recording catches the mood; it was obviously a fun evening.
