Editorial Reviews

This 5-CD box set features six vocal stars in a collection of the most popular opera scenes and arias. CD 1 focuses on the young star baritone Jorma Hynninen with a recording from 1989. CD 2 features the outstanding lyric soprano Soile Isokoski with what has been hailed by the press in 2004 as "one of the best albums available of Mozart arias." CD 3 contains the début album of highly acclaimed young baritone Tommi Hakala, which he recorded shortly after winning the BBC `Singer of the World' contest in 2003. Mezzo-soprano Elı¯na Garancˇa's début recording (CD 4) was released in 2001 by Ondine before she became the international superstar of today. Bass-baritone Juha Uusitalo joined Ondine's roster in 2008 with an acclaimed Wagner album, of which CD 5 features three extracts. Completing the disc, and as a culmination of this opera gala box, star soprano Karita Mattila performs, among other arias, "Vissi d'arte" from Tosca, in a live captured open-air concert from 2000, in front of an audience of 11,000 people in Helsinki.
