Listing Detail Tabs

Magdalena Kožená is a remarkable singer. Her voice is a somewhat light mezzo with many colors, and she can shade it to a whisper or impress with a fortissimo high B-flat. Her range is absolutely even from top to bottom and she never switches gears; similarly she refuses to push the voice at either end. Her reading of Eboli's "Veil Song" from Verdi's Don Carlos is seductive and insinuating, with just the right Spanish flavor in the low-register roulades--but they're soft-focused.The trill is in place, the legato smooth as silk. DG's production is grand: not only are the sonics remarkably clean and clear, with ideal balances between Kožená and Minkowski's wonderful Mahler Chamber Orchestra, but the producers have left a couple of seconds between tracks so we can prepare for another character. This is a brilliant disc.
