"She could have sung all night - and still they'd have begged for more.If you read much of the press about her (which tends to paint her as wilful and difficult to work with), the last adjective you'd expect to apply to an Angela Gheorghiu recital is charm. Yet this live concert is exactly that - utterly charming. The soprano is variously light, sensitive and touching in a selection that includes songs from her native Romania. Her cheering, screaming fans are another matter."
(Gramophone Editor's Choice Dec 2007)

Angela's magnificent voice and dazzling stage presence have established her as a unique international opera star. For the last 12 years, Angela Gheorghiu has been in constant demand in opera houses and concert halls around the world.

If you want to hear her melt her way through glorious French chansons, or sparkle with brilliance in bel canto by Donizetti and Verdi, it's a must-buy.

Gheorhiu's recital falls into four sections. She begins with a selection of arie antiche, continues into the bel canto and then French repertoire, and finishes with pieces from her native Romania.

Recorded live at La Scala, Milan on 3 April 2006 with Jeff Cohen (piano)
