DONIZETTI
Donizetti Heroines
Elena Mosuc (soprano) / Symphony Orchestra of Croatian Radio-Television, Ivo Lipanovic

[ Sony Classical / CD ]

Release Date: Tuesday 6 May 2014

"Mosuc takes few prisoners on this bel canto CD...her singing can be viscerally exciting...There's a thoughtfulness about Mosuc's singing, too...Not all of Mosuc's characterisation is as elegantly characterised [as her Maria Stuarda]...Yet the excitement of hearing a dramatic coloratura soprano singing with such intelligence and accuracy generally outweighs such reservations." (BBC Music)

"the overall production here is meticulous. Never does one have the sense that she has learnt arias just for the recording...Mosuc is formidable. Her medium-weight coloratura has the necessary range and flexibility, her upper range being particularly thrilling, with high notes that aren't just confident in dramatically appropriate ways." (Gramophone)

"Mosuc is not found lacking when it comes to surmounting the fioriture of whichever cabaletta is being sung, her technical prowess ensuring admirable results and the voice well honed, with trills and clean articulation in florid stretches." (International Record Review)
