I purchased track 4 - "il est doux, il est bon" because I was studying it in my voice lessons. Though Gheorghiu's diction was good and helpful for listening purposes, and of course her voice is beautiful, I thought this performance lacked emotion and expression. The meaning of the text was not communicated to me through this recording. For a more heartfelt performance, check out Renee Fleming's recording of Herodiade instead.
The entire album is beautifully sung, with a balanced emotion that is appropriate and yet moving. The technique and tone are flawless throughout.
