Voce Di Donna

It is uncanny that voice so satisfyingly rich in texture and volume should be attached to a young woman as lovely as American mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves.

Overview

It is uncanny that voice so satisfyingly rich in texture and volume should be attached to a young woman as lovely as American mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves. Already internationally famous in "Carmen" and "Samson et Dalila" (the sources of splashily theatrical arias included on this recital CD), Graves dazzles here with her interpretation of arias by Gluck and Purcell, suggesting new avenues for her career. Admirable in breath control, "Che faro" from "Orfeo" is thrillingly heartfelt, in the tradition of Marilyn Horne. Lush in tone as anything on this disc, the arias in English from "Dido and Aeneas" and Barber's "Vanessa" reflect the fact that Graves, like most Yankee singers, has studied foreign language diction more than her native tongue, but this is a minor quibble. This is exceptionally attractive singing, cradled by discreet accompaniment from Maurizio Barbacini's Munich Radio Orchestra, which will surely win more fans for this skyrocketing young superstar. VOCE DI DONNA? More like "Voce di Diva."
