CD Accord ACD 135-2

I’ve heard Joanna Kozlowska only once and that was in a live b’cast of il Trovatore by Serbian radio and the impression she then made on me was big enough to grab this Polish CD release when I saw it in the shops and it came as no surprise to me it’s a wonderful compilation of Verdi and Puccini arias.  She already has more than 20 years of singing behind her but that really shows nowhere as the voice is still fresh, sensitive, powerful when needed and perfectly moulded into the music she’s singing whether interpreting the young Mimi or the more mature Leonora in Verdi’s Trovatore. In spite of the 50 minutes only this CD is a wonderful tribute to a great vocal artist. Brava!
