Summary
"Emma Matthews ? renowned as the finest Australian soprano of her generation ? unveils her triumphant third album: 'Agony and Ecstasy.' Inspired by words from Verdi's opera La traviata, the album presents a rich and timeless journey through the many faces of love, drawing on opera that employed the power of music to bring alive experiences of the heart as never before. Agony and Ecstasy opens with a joyful expression of young love by Juliet in Gounod's Shakespeare-inspired opera: 'I want to live in this heady dream forever!' A new mood is introduced by the calculating determination of Rosina to win her lover in The Barber of Seville; the album closes with the poignant desperation of Elvira's ?mad scene' in I Puritani, when she thinks herself abandoned. Between these, we witness some of opera's most vivid characters as they grapple with love. The eight arias ? by Bellini, Rossini, Verdi, Donizetti and Gounod ? were composed within sixty years of one another. Influenced by a Romantic desire to explore love and emotion, these composers were given the perfect vehicle by the bel canto compositional style, which prized both vocal fireworks and honest, heartfelt emotion." -- jbhifi.com.au
