Scottish Chamber Orchestra - Mozart: Opera Arias & Overtures - Classic FM
‘My Classic FM album of the week has a really original idea - it pairs overtures and arias from Mozart operas, and one of his most beguiling arias is from Don Giovanni, and it's sung beautifully - as are all the arias on this disc - by the British Sopranos Elizabeth Watts. I've actually been in touch with Elizabeth over this and I asked how do you set about playing a minx like Zelena? "Well" she says, "by making sure your voice is at its most beautiful and even sexy, and throwing in the odd element of surprise". I think she pulls it off beautifully.'
