Russian-born soprano Rita Streich, also known as the 'Viennese Nightingale', was a much-admired singer of the post World War Two era, who made many popular recordings. Her bright pearly voice was a light coloratura, and her repertoire included much lieder, as well as operas by Mozart, and also classical Viennese operetta. Rita Streich's naturally vivacious and charming personality comes across in this delightful collection of various light musical 'bon-bons' which is drawn from her immensely popular recordings of the 1950's. She was adept in several languages and so very well equipped to sing this eclectic mixture of vocal waltzes, songs and arias from operas, operas comique and operettas, which show off her range of vocal abilities, from her effortless coloratura to her sweet, melting way with a melody. The collection includes some old favourites, less familiar pieces and some rarities. There are pretty vocal waltzes such as Johann Strauss' Voices of Spring, the Shadow Song from Meyerbeer's Dinorah and Luigi Arditi's Parla Waltz, lilting melodies such as Delibes' Les filles de Cadix, Saint-Saens' beautiful Le rossignol et la rose and Verdi's delightful Lo spazzocamino, arias from Suppe's operetta Boccaccio (or The Prince of Palermo) and Dvorak's gorgeous Song of the Moon from Rusalka. There are also rarer pieces by less well-known composers, such as a Dell'Acqua's song Villanelle, Czernik's tarantella Chi sa?, and an aria from Benjamin Godard's opera Jocelyn.


'...she delights the ear from start to finish. Highly recommended, this true Original.' Gramophone
