Elliot Fisch
American Record Guide, September 2017

With three outstanding productions in one box, this is highly recommended. The singing is excellent, the productions are traditional and mostly make sense, and the directors make some new points in understanding the characters. …The operas seem to be absolutely complete. © 2017 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

BARTOLI, Cecilia: Best Wishes from Cecilia Bartoli - ROSSINI, G. / MOZART, W.A. (4-DVD Box Set) (NTSC) 109176
BARTOLI, Cecilia: Best Wishes from Cecilia Bartoli - ROSSINI, G. / MOZART, W.A. (3 Blu-ray Disc Box Set) 109177

…just about everything Bartoli has ever done has been engaging. Some singers capture a frozen moment in musical time, and this can be thrilling. Bartoli gives us real human beings in constant flux, and she embodies whatever is happening in the music. She’s incapable of singing the same music the same way twice, as she demonstrates in “Mi tradì.” Bartoli was already a unique and cherishable musician twenty-eight years ago in Schwetzingen, and she remains one today. © 2016 Opera News Read complete review

The production is quirky, but colourful… The Orchestra and Chorus of the Zurich Opera House respond to Franz Welser-Möst’s alert baton in a wholly sympathetic and Rossinian manner. © 2016 MusicWeb International Read complete review
