Format: Audio CD
This recording is truly Cecelia Bartoli at her studio best. I say "studio best", because I've always enjoyed tapings of her live performances more than renditions such as these. This "portrait", however, is a collection of extremely appealing selections of operatic and classical music. Importantly, she stays within her realm here. Miss Bartoli has the sometimes unfortunate occasion of going beyond her considerable talent in the music she attempts, but not in this case. There are no harsh high notes unwisely attempted. Mellow and beautiful are the words to describe her renditions. I've owned this compilation for almost six years now and still enjoy it!
In the soaring climax of 'Bel Raggio Lusinghere', she seems to be taking flight to heaven, and in her stirring aria from Maometto II, she goes down to the depths of sadness. The music chosen is also to be complimented, because of its varied styles that never tire the listener.

"A Portrait" is a collage of recordings from Ms. Bartoli's career. The highlight for me (from the many enjoyable numbers) is her "Bel raggio lusinghier" from "Semiramide." I highly recommend this fine CD.

I consider Ms bartoli to be one of the best mezzo- sopranos,if not the best,at the present moment.She has perfect technique and a warmth of voice that you feel only an Italian can have(and nothing better than having an Italian singing in Italian also).This CD is a compilation of the best pieces in her discography so far.It is a CD to fall in love with.

Cecelia Bartoli releases yet another fanastic CD, 'A Portrait'. This CD shows off her ability to sing with warmth and brilliance in a variety of beautiful music written for both soprano and mezz-sopranos. If you enojoy listening to this singer, 'A Portrait' is an asset to your CD collection.
