Review by FullRangeMan December 19, 2008 (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
A very refined release. A refreshing duet soprano/piano SACD with a soulful exquisite virtuose soprano and a unsual accompanist piano, the pianist do not use the western piano classical language to attend the singer, he or she use a kind of Japanese style on piano, seems a bit like a fine ethnic piano idiom. This give a informal and romantic air to the performance. A disc with hi emotional impact to tears, for listen many times due the beautiful songs. The piano have a delicate female tone, maybe a Yamaha, a excelent DSD recording, with Stereo + MultiC mixs, twenty tracks and a 47:01 time. A must for Opera and vocal music fans. As usual with all Japanese CD/SACDs there is no English translation in the booklet, I think the rest of World deserve this attention. Worth the 38 dollars of Fedex to Brasil.
