Just listen to Damrau's handling of this hideous piece.
Abert
Nor is the conducter really on par with Damrau in some interpretations.

Now she has recorded one of the best CDs of Mozart arias ever.

It seems that with every new recording one discovers a new facet of this wonderful artist. Her voice is gorgeous. It has a bit more depth and darkish color that your usual coloratura soprano. She isn't quite a dramatic coloratura soprano, maybe a coloratura with some Spinto not lyric overtones. You may well ask yourself why I'm taking the time to explore this unique sound of hers? WELL!!! Because of the color and size of her beautiful voice she can do many more roles that the average lyric-coloratura soprano can't. Besides having a great sound and technique, she is also a great vocal actress! Also, live reviews tell us she is a great actress on stage. Besides, a wonderful MITRIDATE aria we get an excellent MARTERN ALLER ARTEN. We also get a rich voiced Countess from FIGARO and Donna Anna's NON MI DIR with stunning coloratura. I also love her VORREI SPIEGARVI, OH DIO. I fell in love with this aria because of Beverly Sills' wonderful recording of this aria. Her coloratura is up there with the best and her interpretive skills right up there also. Let's hope for many more wonderful recordings, DVDs, and performances from this great artist.
The accompaniments are with LE CERCLE de L'HARMONIE conducted by Jeremie Rhorer. Most of their work is excellent but maybe a little fast in VORREI SPIEGARVI. It may take some listeners a few moments to adjust to period instruments for Mozart Operas especially the Flutes. To my ear they come across a little out of tune. However that just may be me. In spite of this do not miss this great CD of great Mozart Arias performed by a new golden age Mozartian. This Soprano has my highest respect and recommendation. Try some of her recital CDS especially, the Salzburg Recital on ORFEO and her Mahler Recital. She is an exceptional recitalist as well as a great singer of Opera!

The more I hear of Damrau, the more amazed I become.
This array of Mozart arias demonstrates her exceptional vocal capabilities and astounding range. There is nothing lacking in style and articulation.
But what is most astonishing is not vocal technique. It is the ability of this singer to express herself through the medium of singing.
Vitellia's aria from La Clemenza di Tito is a hideously difficult piece of vocal writing, so hideous because, as musical historians found out, Mozart himself hated Vitellia. The more he hated this character, the more difficulty he injects into her music.
Just listen to Damrau's handling of this hideous piece. I have heard many top sopranos/mezzos singing this before - Eva Mei, Anne Sofie von Otter, just to name two recent ones. None of them, however beautiful they handle the piece, could sound convincing enough. And Rene Jacobs' version of La Clemenza a couple of years ago introduced a fiendishly capable Vitellia in the form of Bulgarian coloratura Alexandrina Pendatchanska. No lacking in expressiveness, I thought then that this Vitellia is unsurpassable.
Well, let me report that Damrau does indeed surpassed Pendatchanska's interpretation. Damrau's Vitellia is so alive and believable: fear, regret, remorse, hesitation, resolution, all bound up in Mozart's musical lines, and so effectively articulated by Damrau. The aria becomes at once totally explicable - Mozart did NOT in fact lacked one jot of empathy for his Vitellia, however much he might have disliked her.
Thank you, Ms. Damrau, for your great interpretation.

I can see that I am going to be out on a limb compared with previous reviewers - but I notice that an Amazon.fr reviewer thinks similarly to me, so here goes anyway:

I was looking forward to reviewing this disc, having been impressed by Diana Damrau when I heard her live as Zerbinetta and, like everyone else, wowed by her Queen of the Night on DVD and "YouTube", where her rendition of that fiendish aria has had hundreds of thousands of hits. She has since declared that she will no longer be performing that rôle, but, judging by this collection of arias, I wonder if that decision is premature.

Undeniably, Damrau is hugely talented: lapidary precision in coloratura, no hint of shrillness in her top notes, absolute security of intonation, an assured stage presence and considerable personal charms - she has many sterling qualities which combine to make her a gifted singer of the modern type that productions worldwide cry out for. She is, nonetheless, still a relatively young and inexperienced singer and I wonder if she has not allowed herself to be pushed too soon into assuming the grander kind of Mozartian rôles to which her voice is not (yet?) ideally suited. I need to be specific if I am to make my case, and I am aware that some will think that I am being unnecessarily harsh, but while listening to the majority of the arias she undertakes here, I inevitably found myself comparing her with earlier, favourite artists, as I felt that there was something wanting.

Let's start with Pamina's aria from "Die Zauberflöte".
