Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
volume, of The Record of Singing. It can be easy to prefer the previous volumes 1 through 4, of this great enterprise, but don't make this mistake. The Volume 5 has excellent performances from a 55-year period .. from 1957 thru 2007 .. and almost all are worth the paltry price, for a 10 CD set. One can also find some performances/names that are unjustifiedly unknown - such as Solveig Kringelhorn, Chris Merritt, Patrizia Ciofi (w/the justifiedly, somewhat well-known mezzo .. Joyce DiDonato), Nina Stemme and many others. This is the penultimate, reissue project from the great label .. EMI .. and it's archives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eclectic, Random and Enjoyable January 29, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This vocal survey of the EMI catalogue of recordings offers a generous sampling of one aria per singer, all chosen by Tony Locantro of EMI, and commented on by the esteemed vocal historian and critic John Steane in the introduction. All the best known EMI-recorded singers are represented from 1953 through 2007, as well as many lesser known singers such as Dame Joan Hammond, Elsie Morison, Martha Angelici, Aase Nordmo-Lövberg, June Bronhill, Melitta Muszely, Amy Shuard, Hanny Steffek, Andrée Esposito, Sari Barabas, Albert Lance, Eugenio Fernandi, Joao Gibin, Charles Craig, Giuseppe Campora, Ronald Dowd, Wilfred Brown, Michel Dens, Irina Arkhipova, Donald Smith, Aage Haugland, Dagmar Schellenberger, Hera Lind, Katarina Karnéus, Emily Van Evera, Catherine King, Nigel Rogers, Aris Christofellis, Charles Brett, Harry van der Kamp, Dominique Visse, Gerard Lesne, Sandrine Piau, Sine Bundgaard, Christine Rice, Yu Qiang Dai, Max Emanuel Cencic, Toby Spence & Rodion Pogossov. Any compilation is necessarily subjective and I find this one very satisfying yet intriguing for my own discovery of previously unheard singers worthy to be included among the great. A few of the selections are perhaps not the best representations of the specific singers such as Leontyne Price who is here represented by her third and final recording of the complete il trovatore by Verdi in the aria "D'amor sull'ali rosee" from 1977. Better are her previous recordings of this aria on RCA, but EMI is obviously limited to their own recordings. Nevertheless it is a fascinating collection which offers many vocal pleasures.
