Notes & Reviews:

A richly-colored voice, a perfect technique and a vivid musical imagination: the recipe for a portrait of an exceptional artist. 'Enchantment' is a personal selection of Magdalene Kozena's greatest recordings - a testimony to the power, drama and tenderness of her voice, and the wide range of her repertoire. "Kozena has one of those voices that seem to go straight to the heart." -Gramophone Magazine
