Fidelio
Great Operatic Arias - Christine Brewer
Gramophone
'The Philharmonia is in exemplary form, as is the Geoffrey Mitchell Choir. Parry has a Leonore in Christine Brewer who can easily stand comparison with her contemporaries in the role and indeed surpass them in warmth of tone and technical security.'
International Record Review
'In Beethoven's Ah perfido, the warm, refulgent middle of her voice, well supported, yields to gleaming sheen as she climbs to the upper reaches, and she transmits the vengeance and fury required in the recitative.'

Fidelio Leonora's recitative and aria 'Vile murderer!'
BBC Music Magazine
'Her intelligent vocal management gives her grandly impressive version of the great Fidelio scene real dramatic cut and thrust.'

'David Parry draws some tremendous playing from the Philharmonia on this disc: thrilling horn calls, wind sounds that can caress the ear or terrify the heart, string playing that throbs with energy - and all at the service of the drama.'

'This latest disc in Chandos Great Operatic Arias in English series finds the American soprano Christine Brewer on top form... Even if you are not inclined to opera in translation, do consider this CD by a very fine singer.'
