PUCCINI AT HIS GLORIOUS BEST

I loved this collection of Puccini arias for many reasons. First of all, Ms. Gheorghiu has a voice made for Puccini. Her interpretations are exquisite, and the voice is simply lovely. The choice of adding a number of arias from lesser-known operas such as "Edgar," "La Fanciulla del West," and "Le Villi" was brilliant. In fact, they have become my particular favorites. Add to all of that is the fact that she is such a beautiful artist. If you had six stars, I would have given it all six.

ADORE HER...LOVE CD

Ms Gheorghiu has a voice that is not only beautiful but also so expressive. She caresses the words without ever seeming to be the least bit mannered. Her inclusion of some very rare Puccini arias is a stroke of genius for her and a stroke of luck for us. I love this album.
Pitch problems and vocal disappointments

I really liked Gheorghiu the first time that I heard her. I thought that she was probably the best soprano out there in the spotlight. After hearing this CD, however, I have really changed my mind. First of all, she sings flat in alot in this CD. Secondly, her technique is showing some flaws now in that she can not always pronounce the words correctly. So she makes some strange sounds. For example, "Tu, tu, tu" which should be pronounced with a pure 'oo' sound is pronounced 'tuh'. I also feel that her voice is a bit frantic in alot of parts with her middle range and chest voice being weak and uncoordinated. How unfortunate! She needs to get it together or she is going down the toilet.
