No more making allowances for countertenors--now the best of the breed have voices as rich and as varied as those of any other range. Exhibit A: Gramophone cover boy Andreas Scholl. Unlike David Daniels and Brian Asawa, who made their splash on the opera stage, Scholl became famous as a concert and oratorio singer. He doesn't sing with Daniels's temperament and fire; along with a certain equanimity, he has a round, pleasing sound and a vibrato that's attractive but never intrusive. For his first

Jonas Kaufmanns matchless charisma and effortless physicality enable him to embody a broad range of characters onstage. These discs make clear, however, that Kaufmanns acting emerges above all in his voice. Through acute interpretative intelligence and deeply affecting dramatic involvement, every gradation of feeling is revealed. Whether in French, German, or Italian, this is one of the most communicative singers of our time.CD 1ROMANTIC ARIASPrague Philharmonic Orchestra Marco ArmiliatoCD 2MOZA

In 1912, Thomas A. Edison conducted a European talent search designed to recruit vocal artists for his record company. Over three hundred cylinders of some of Europe's greatest singers were recorded and sent back to the United Sates for Edison's personal review. Before these canisters were opened last year, Thomas Edison was the last person to hear these 1912-1913 cylinders. They represent not only some of the only recorded examples of certain European singers active during this period, but are

Souping up the classics with whatever contemporary music pulse is current at the moment has a long history. Some artists, like Emerson, Lake and Palmer, aspired to classical grandiosity. Others, like Michael Murphy and his discofied ''A Fifth of Beethoven,'' turn classical melodies into pop hooks. Paul Schwartz falls somewhere in the middle with his Aria project, of which this is the third. Electronica grooves and effects angle their way through songs ''based'' on operatic works by Handel, Verdi

Love, angst, and revenge are the timeless themes of Handel s operas, as brought to vivid life in this recording by the acclaimed baroque orchestra Apollo s Fire. Grammy®-winning soprano Amanda Forsythe, described as simply dazzling by the New York Times, joins conductor/harpsichordist Jeannette Sorrell to explore the gamut of emotions, from fiery coloratura arias to tragic laments. The recording includes rarely-heard arias and a few favorite chestnuts, drawn from eight of the composer s operas.

Accompanied by the superb Staatskapelle Dresden, under the occasionally overmellow baton of Sir Colin Davis, Finnish soprano Karita Mattila here presents eight German Romantic arias, two of which--concert arias--are in Italian. Agathe's two arias from Weber's Der Freischuetz are handsomely, introspectively sung, with lovely tone and nice inner reflection. Leonore's big scene from Fidelio is suitably angry and hopeful, with Mattila's voice an ideal instrument for the character's predicament and B

In his all-too-short life, Wunderlich became one of the finest Mozartian tenors of his time; here, he sings arias from Don Giovanni; Cosi Fan Tutte; Die Zauberflote , and more Mozart, plus Smetana's Die Verkaufte Braut ; Wagner's Der Fliegende Hollander ; arias by Donizetti, Strauss, Massenet, and more. Fritz Wunderlich is one of those singers whose voice, while you are listening to it, seems to eclipse all others. Ravishingly beautiful, perfectly produced, radiant, even, mellow, it flows out wi

Recorded in Dresden in December 2000, this new version of Strauss's Ariadne has become by default the last will and testament of Giuseppe Sinopoli. On April 20, 2001, the Venetian maestro collapsed in the middle of a performance in Berlin, victim of a heart attack at age 54. Since 1992, he had been principal conductor of the prestigious Dresden Staatskapell, which undertook a privileged collaboration with Richard Strauss himself in premiering nine of the composer's operas. There's no surprise, t

Bolton,Michael ~ My Secret Passion Of course Michael Bolton--the world's greatest mimic--should not be allowed within 200 yards of an opera house, what with his bluesy rasp instead of the round, pure sound associated with opera. But he's no fool, and he has studied the languages (Italian and French), the idiom, and the texts of all of these well-known, oft-recorded arias. He claims to love this music and I, for one, believe him. He hits all the notes--occasionally too hard and invariably with th

FLEMING RENEE BEL CANTO Surely Renée Fleming's soprano must be one of the most beautiful voices before the public today. Though renowned for her interpretations of Mozart, Strauss, and Verdi, as well as for her commitment to contemporary music, she says that the bel canto repertoire has always been central to her career. On this recording, which features scenes and arias from operas by Bellini, Donizetti, and Rossini, she proves that she has achieved total, effortless technical mastery of the u
