Review by Graham Williams - June 27, 2004

Yet another winner from PentaTone! This SACD is a delight from start to finish. Elly Ameling’s lovely voice is captured to perfection in each of these Mozart and Schubert arias recorded in London (1972) and Rotterdam (1975) respectively.
The mellow playing of the English Chamber Orchestra in the Mozart perfectly complements the purity of Ameling’s singing, and makes one appreciate the warmth of the instrumental sound; so different from some of the more abrasive ‘original instrument’ productions we are used to nowadays.
The Schubert items, which take up a quarter of the disc, are not as familiar, but equally enjoyable. Here the Rotterdam PO provides stylish accompaniments (listen to the mellifluous woodwind in the aria from Der Zwillingsbrüder) and Edo de Waart’s conducting throughout is all one could wish for.
More like this please PentaTone!
