Old violins

Creator: Hugh Reginald Haweis | 1905

The father of Galileo the astronomer declared in 1583 that the best lutes were at that time made in England, and we know that lute-making and viol- making so invariably went together that in France and Italy the violin-maker is to this ...

    Decca

    Not 100% satisfied with the selections, but what artistry!

    Decca's release of this career-spanning Marilyn Horne recital contains many "golden" nuggets, but isn't the absolute best representation of her artistry, in my opinion.There was certainly plenty of material to choose from, as Horne was one of the most recorded mezzos in the twentieth century. As advertised, Madame Horne personally approved the final recital list, and the diva undoubtedly has sentimental attachment to certain selections. Furthermore, a conscious attempt was made to represent the different genres explored during her decades-spanning career. This approach, however, leaves out some truly stunning material that would have made an even stronger case on why she was such an operatic institution.In summary:The first disc begins with the Habanera from Carmen. Horne was very proud of her Carmen, noting that it surpassed sales of Callas's Tosca at one point. It deserved to be included, but I don't think she was "THE" Carmen, and besides,... 5/5 cherubino (Houston, Texas United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Just for the Record: The Golden Voice (Audio CD) Decca's release of this career-spanning Marilyn Horne recital contains many "golden" nuggets, but isn't the absolute best representation of her artistry, in my opinion.There was certainly plenty of material to choose from, as Horne was one of the most recorded mezzos in the twentieth century.

    Marilyn Horne scintillates

    This 2-CD set includes 32 separate "cuts." Thus, it provides a perspective on the broad range of works that Marilyn Horne mastered. While some pockets of work may be given somewhat short shrift (e.g., Rossini), overall this shows off her skills nicely. Born in Bradford, Pennsylvania (one of the coldest places in the nation during winter), she made her operatic debut in 1954. In liner notes copyrighted in 2003, she notes that: "Can't believe it's time for a 70th birthday celebration. . . ." And neither can I, since I recall hearing her perform at the Met (via the old Texaco opera show), and it does not seem all that long ago!Some cuts well depict her artistry across a range of genres and composers.The "Habanera" from Bizet's "Carmen" is, to be sure, an old chestnut by now, but she sings it with a rich and lustrous voice. She sings a seductive aria seductively."Eccomi al fine in Babilonia" is from Rossini's "Semiramide" and shows off her skills... 5/5 Steven A.
