Notes & Reviews:

Great Opera Duets is a 2-CD collection which traces the operatic and oratorio duet from its origins to the modern era - a program spanning 400 years of sacred and operatic music, from Purcell to Richard Strauss, via Handel, Mozart, Verdi, and Donizetti.

Amongst many treasures, the program offers a previously unpublished recording of Hande's "De torrente", duet from Dixit Dominus, by Véronique Gens and Natalie Dessay, and 3 duets from La Traviata, sung by the famous operatic tandem Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazón.
