Great Intro to the world of the Mezzo
This is a really good compilation of some powerhouse mezzo repertoire. This album shows off Zajick's amazing versitility in languages and opera genres. Tracks 8 and 12 are especially moving. Zajick conveys her larger than life ego in her singing. She has a great way of being engaging and thrillingly un-appologetic in her singing. Her voice does sound a little "old lady-ish" at times in the middle register but she has a clear, easy high voice and robust lower register. Great to listen to for different timbres.
Sound quality is awful!!!!!!
Zajick is great, maybe the greatest Mezzo in the last decades but the sound quality of this recording is really a shame
