Released as part of Dame Kiri’s 70th birthday celebrations, this 6CD set is a representative tribute to a much-loved and exceptionally fine lyric soprano – taken from recordings made during those years when she was at the peak of her illustrious career (the early 80s through to the mid-90s). This well chosen set sticks to the repertoire in which she excels. It ranges from imperative discs devoted to composers who celebrate the joys of the soprano voice – namely Mozart and Richard Strauss – through intimate song settings – a whole disc of Canteloube’s Auvergne settings – to Granados and Obradors.
