Hello !
I have rather ecclectic tastes and this is one of my all time favourite albums.
I understood it is a classic sampler of songs (about ? 2/3 are on the album) collected centuries ago to cover all required singing technique & is used as exercises.
I can relate to the comments of the previous reviewers.
I am NOT an "opera buff" and find some of Cecelia's albums a bit tedious - but not this one.
When I first heard it, I went straight out and bought it.
Why ?
Enjoyment - most of the songs are very pleasant and easy to "hum / la,la,la along to".
But mostly because of her astonishing technique.
If this was an exam, I'm sure she'd get a perfect score.
Her breathing is incredible. As an untrained singer, I KNOW how good she is, believe me !
I was, and still am, completely flabberghasted at her ability to vary volume - especially "without breathing".I have, on occasion, asked friends who actively dislike classical singing to hear certain examples only to consider her ability and in every case they have been very impressed.
I also find some of her renditions extremely touching - even devastating: her "expression"is very skilled & genuine.
My father (opera buff & amateur singer) was astonished at her age when she recorded it - I think approx. 26 or 7 - he felt she sounded far more "mature" than that on this recording.
The accompanying piano is the only instrument and is sensitively and well - played.
The overall impression is of calm with a few lively bursts to break it up. And all the while, excellence.
If you are NOT into complete operas or grand, orchestral performances BUT appreciate & enjoy classical music and singing, you should give this a listen.

Cecilia Bartoli is indisputably one of the best representatives of Italian singing nowadays. In a time when many singers sacrifice clean-cut singing for screams, sobs and other tricks, Bartoli's straightforward approach stands out. Her instrument is not the most powerful but because of her solid vocal training she can be heard in the last rows of a theatre. She can tackle the most difficult coloratura but also sing a legato line with great warmth and exemplary evenness of tone.
The arias she sings are simple but never simplistic. Standard arias for a young singer but listening to Cecilia here makes me wonder how many legendary sopranos or mezzos would be able to sing these pieces so skilfully, expressively and with beauty of tone. Listen for example with how much intelligence and expressiveness she handles Paisello's "Nel cor piu non mi sento". Each song has its own character and Bartoli knows exactly how to sing it. Truly a lesson of Italian singing! The only aspect that I sometimes find less pleasing is her occasional aggressive singing. This however only occurs when she embellishes a lot.
I greatly admire Bartoli not only for her operatic achievements and tastes (she's a ardent Tebaldi fan) but also for her devotion to classical singing only (she refuses to become a crossover singer).
Don't miss this lovely recital!

The "24 Arias" are known by every singer as the beginner songs, and the fact is that many students butcher the songs because they find them very boring to sing. Therefore this is a recording for any beginner. Cecilia's coloring, vocal line, diction and basic interpretation are what an aspiring singer should aim for. Even the "boring" songs are brought to life by this versitile singer. How many times has one heard "Se tu m'ami" and just thought, "Not again." Well Cecilia brings new life to timeless songs and hopefully she will inspire younger singers to find the beauty in these songs. For the non-singers, what more could you want to hear but a beautiful singer singing beautiful songs?

As an accompanist for the past 20+ years, I'd come to believe these songs - many contained within the (in)famous "24 Italian Songs and Arias" were stricly for the high school/early college vocalist to butcher while learning the basics of good singing and Italian.
Boy was I wrong!
Cecilia Bartoli takes these songs and makes you ache, rejoice, and desire right along with her. I never thought I'd be moved by ANY performance of "Caro mio ben" and yet I nearly wrecked my car the first time I heard her on this recording. Magnificent! As is each and every track on this disc. It's inspired me to be a better accompanist and coach, as well as an ardent admirer of all things Bartoli. Many of my choral/vocal music teacher friends have received this disc or bought it after hearing mine. BUY THIS RECORDING!
The only downer is that I may never feel complete if I don't get to accompany this lady on the title track before I die. Oh, well - I guess you can't have it all!

As a performing operatic tenor, I well know the difficulties of maintaing line and expressing subtle nuance associated with this period of music, but Cecilia does a fantastic job on both accounts! What purity of tone and clarity of thought she presents. For those students of voice, this is a recording which can properly introduce, in a simple and unadorned way, the basics of line, phrase, breath, and musicality; a fantastic addition to one's musical library.
