Diana Damrau knocks each and every one of these arias and recitatives out of the ball park. She is truly a force in the world of opera and remains among the greatest sopranos of her generation and of all time. Her vocal dynamism, range, and control are utterly breath-taking. This album is a wonderful collection of beautiful music performed brilliantly by a truly great artist. 
Superb!
