Notes & Reviews:

"Just in time for Valentine's Day, the stellar German soprano Juliane Banse brings you - "Per Amore." Rather than being a standard program of love duets and tearjerkers, Ms. Banse has selected a highly intelligent recital that offers an operatic perspectives of love, from a woman's point-of-view. Throughout her career, Juliane Banse has distinguished herself not only for the beauty of her singing, but for the depth of her characterizations and deep empathy with the emotional world of the women she is portraying, whether they are shy or sly, seductive or suffering. In addition to perennial favorites from Mozart and Puccini, Bizet and Gounod, Ms. Banse has included lesser-known arias from "Die Freischutz" by Weber, "Eugen Onegin" by Tchaikovsky, "The Bartered Bride" by Smetana and "Manon" by Massenet."

”Prior to this recital disc, the only times I had heard soprano Juliane Banse in opera were as Frau Fluth in Nicolai's Merry Wives of Windsor on CPO and as Marzelline in Fidelio under Simon Rattle. Her CDs of Brahms songs and various oratorio recordings are all impressive--but here, in this varied if unsurprising collection, we can get to hear her in many guises and up close.

The voice is a full lyric and quite beautiful, with plenty of warmth, security at all dynamic levels, and a clear, even line from top to bottom. “-Classicstoday.com

Gramophone Magazine
Banse sings with silvery clean, gently warmed beauty. However, her character analyses are occasionally rather odd. Take Lauretta, the love-struck innocent of Puccini's Gianni Schicchi. Banse has branded her a duplicitous fibber, and transformed her tender 'O mio babbino caro' into a hammed-up parody. However, there's still much to be savoured, including a particularly profound reading of Weber's 'Leise, leise, fromme Weise'.

International Record Review
The voice is a full lyric and quite beautiful, with plenty of warmth, security at all dynamic levels and a clear, even line from top to bottom...Her Mimì is sung directly and sweetly...Her Tatyana is breathless and girlish, and she sounds utterly sincere in every mood change and moment of self-doubt. Micaëla's aria is simply gorgeous, the tone solid, the legato ideal.
