A So-So Traversal of Duets
Duets Much as I have loved Anna Netrebko's previous CDs I cannot give this one high marks at all. I know this has been praised to the skies by the "official" critics, but I find the music making dulcitory; it sounds more like a contest between Netrebko and Villazon than a concerted singing. Some of the intonation is fairly poor for two major professionals, and I do not have any sense that they feel they are making great music between them. Something major is lacking. The orchestral sound is average. Villazon is definitely my favorite tenor; he seems always to be pushing to make the higher notes and I do not find his tone particularly attractive. Even Netrebko in the La Boheme duet is a little screechy and hard... maybe it's the digital recording, but it isn't very pretty at times. The back of the jewel case states "Netrebko's chemistry with Villazon generated cosmic sparks" (Berliner Morgenpost). Well, maybe somewhere else, but definitely not here! Find another grouping of duets and be happy.

Glorious Recording
The Netrebko, Villazon pairing is nothing short of astonishing -- their singing is passionate and gorgeous. It's impossible to do anything but sit and listen while these duets are playing. The album is a "must have" for any opera lover.
