Recensione album

The overexposure of Nana Mouskouri the world over has obscured the genuine quality of some of her work, particularly in her earlier years. This 27-track, 79-minute U.K. compilation is a good place to start for English-speaking audiences interested in getting material from her formative recordings in bulk. Recorded entirely in Greece (and sung entirely in Greek) between 1958 and 1960, it's an impressive and at times exhilarating survey of the era, as interesting for the songs and arrangements as for her singing. Her vocals are, to be sure, an important part of the music, drawing from her classical training but delivered with a measured, somewhat melancholy emotion.

But as an anthology documenting her origins as a recording star, it's an excellent value.

Possessed of a distinctive, angelic soprano — the product of having been born with only one vocal cord — Mouskouri was sometimes described as Europe's answer to Barbra Streisand. Her repertoire was varied enough to support the...
