classical music: duets
Jeanette MacDonald & Nelson Eddy
Jasmine Music, 2007
Just great!! As I always say of MacDonald, I just love her. Not too fussed on Eddy though. I think it's Jeanette's voice that I love.
The Most Famous Opera Duets
EMI Classics, 1994
Don't let the low price fool you!
This CD is magnificent, especially for people just getting into opera. I've never really been interested in opera before, but I've recently started listening to it and wanted a CD of my own to listen to. When I bought this, I was a little wary of the low price, and I wondered what the quality would be (mostly quality of the content). Let me tell you, it is magnificent! There are so many ...
Young and Old
I regard this C.D. as one of a kind. Where older songs are sung by younger singers, and then, there's Pavorotti,the master who pulls it all together. A great C.D..
The Duets [Luciano Pavarotti]
Out of t\
I was surprised how the voices of these popular singers blended so beautifully with Pavarotti's opera-trained voice. The arrangements are all beautiful. Cheryl Crow and Celine Dion's duets with Pavarotti display standing-ovation talent! You cannot go wrong with this fascinating blend of voices from different genres (rock, country, easy listening, etc.) We absoultely loved it!
Rapture: Opera's Most Heavenly Moments
Rapture: Opera's Most Heavenly Moments
Deutsche Grammophon, 2002
Opera's Most Heavenly Moments Indeed
I have more experience with other genres of music, but am interested in basically all kinds. I have been collecting CDs for nearly 2 decades but had no Opera in my collection. I did a little research and arrived at a conclusion. If I wanted the most and best Opera music for my money, I had to get this title, which is a double album, and "The Most Famous Opera Duets". Well, the latter was a ...
Carmen: Duets and Arias
The world s most famous tenor brings his unmistakable voice to one of the world s most popular operas, Carmen. The eleven highlights on this album are well-known, instantly recognized hits full of Spanish flavor and infectious melodies. Andrea Bocelli is arguably the most popular tenor in the world today. His recent album, My Christmas , was a huge hit at the end of last year. Andrea s sincerity, the commitment he brings to the music he sings ...
The #1 Opera Album
The best gift ever.
I purchased this CD as a birthday gift for my sister. Because I personally know nothing about opera, I didn't know how to buy a single opera for her, or even which one she would like if I did know how to get it. So I settled on this "sampler" style Cd, and she just loved it. This is the best of the best of all opera arias and performances. My sister plays it all the time, and I think it is ...
A little gem.
Signs of intelligent life on Earth; when I added this to my iTunes library I gave it my highest complement: "Gemmy". This lovely meditation on Appalachian themes by three fine string musicians has special guests James Taylor and Alison Krauss. I love this recording. This is the best of the fusion work from our great age. Elements of country and bluegrass. This is a treat. Good sonics.
The Ultimate Guitar Collection
The Best Compilation of the Man on 2 Discs! Great Sound Quality Too!
The title very aptly describes this great classical guitar album showcasing some of the best ever works of John Williams on 2 discs. The track selections are great as they span the centuries from the Baroque greats of Bach and Vivaldi to the modern day composers such as Stanley Myers and York. John even flirts with Blues and Jazz-style pieces and they actually sound very good. In addition, ...
Rachmaninov: The Symphonies
The Best Rachmaninov Orchestral Music on the Market
These set the modern standard for the Rachmaninov symphonies. Ashkenazy shows a remarkable affinity for the music. The little known 1st is given a performance that justifies its revival in the repertory. The uncut 2nd is breathtakingly beautiful. Ashkenazy allows it all its "heavenly length" - the complex textures of the first movement, the stunningly energetic scherzo, the beautifully languorous ...

The Classical Child at the Opera
Sophia Sounds/Metro Music, 2001
Excellent teaching tool
I use this CD is my classroom for a wide variety of activities including art instruction for which it is ideally suited. It is hard to recommend this CD enough! Thanks for putting it together.
CHANDOS CHACONNE, 2010
"Streams of pleasure..."
When two of today's Handel specialists come into the studio with a leading period instruments band, the results are likely to be special--and so it proves here. Though it's hard to tell from their booklet bios how often Rosemary Joshua and Sarah Connolly have sung together, they blend very nicely indeed, and Harry Bicket's English Consort are more than mere accompanists. Selections, alternating ...
Prelude: The Best of Charlotte Church
Excellent listening music
This is the best CD i have ever bought. I have over 100, the music is great to listen to in the car, while reading, house cleaning, and even at work. Charlotte has an excellent voice...it is amazingly beautiful. I wish i would have heard about her sooner. the varied music is wonderful. i bought it simply because it contained the closing song from the movie "beautiful mind"...boy was i ...
Anna Netrebko & Rolando Villazon: Duets
Deutsche Grammophon, 2007
Gave this to my opera partner for her birthday and it was a great hit. She loved the tenor the most.

Kathleen Battle · Wynton Marsalis ~ Baroque Duet / Anthony Newman · Orch St. Luke's · Nelson
George Frideric Handel
This is a great cd that shows Kathleen Battle's true musical ability, as well as that of Wynton Marsalis! I highly recommend this to any lover of classical music!
A - Z of Opera (includes 762 page booklet)
Incredible Opportunity to Hear and Lean About Opera
We have loved Opera for years; but, had never been to one. Nor did we know anything really about the composer's or the story of the Operas. This has quickly become our favorite; we bought a second copy for our car and listen to it on trips. As a result of reading the book that comes with it; and, listening to the CD's, we have since bought several full length Opera's for our listening ...
Gershwin: Remembrance and Discovery, Vol. 2
it is my alltime favorite -- to be able to hear Gershwin himself play Rhapsody in Blue is worth EVERYTHING....great CD and great music
