Believe In Love

Paul Turok
Turok’s Choice (US)

Elizabeth Whitehouse is the soprano on a disc devoted to relatively unknown arias about love from the (mostly) less successful operas of many composers: Gounod (Sapho, La Reine de Saba, Cinq Mars, Le Tribut de Zamora), Faccio (Amleto), Gomes (Salvator Rosa), Saint-Saëns (Étienne Marcel), Ponchielli (Marion Delorme), Leoncavallo (Chatterton, Zaza), Giordano (Andrea Chénier, Siberia), Cilea (Adriana Lecouvreur, Gloria) and Mascagni (Isabeau, Sì)
Whitehouse sings fluently … Richard Bonynge leads Orchestra Victoria in excellent accompaniments … on this well-performed, well-recorded disc.
