Format: Audio CD
What a treat to have this Whitman's Sampler of the often magnificent vocal work of Czech mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kozena. At over two hours, this personally selected two-disc compilation reflects the wide variety of material she has covered in her nearly decade-long recording career. What continues to impress me about her voice is how lightly shaded her tone can be for a mezzo and how her range moves fluidly from hushed whisper to throbbing fortissimo. Throughout the span of this collection, Kozena complements her considerable vocal gifts with an ability to inhabit the drama of the arias whether inhabiting a specific role or setting a particular mood. It's masterful work for such a relatively young singer.

Her rich Baroque repertoire is highlighted here. The Handel selections, though familiar, are superb. She makes an impressively volatile Cleopatra in Marc Minkowski's 2002 production of "Giulio Cesare", and the focus on this disc is the grand final sequence - "Se pieta di me non senti", "Piangero la sorte mia" and "Da tempeste il legno infranto". She complements this sequence with another impressive Minkowski collaboration, a 2001 performance of Handel's cantata, "Tra la fiamme", where she trills in fulsome Italianate style, as well as a sonorous duet with soprano Annick Massis on the penultimate "De torrente" from a 2000 performance of "Dixit Dominus".

Mozart is also well represented with two pieces performed with plaintive emotion and sharp articulation - Cherubino's Act II arietta, "Voi che sapete che cosa e amor", from "Le nozze di Figaro" and a more recent turn in the travesty role of Sesto on "Deh, per questo istant solo" from his last opera, "La clemenza di Tito". Kozena showcases her impeccable German diction on four majestic J.S.
