Movie Reviews

Marilyn Horne In All Her Glory!
Edward Z. Norton | Winston-Salem, NC, USA | 11/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Having heard Marilyn Horne perform on three occasions between 1974 and 2001, I can highly recommend the DVD "Marilyn Horne
Sings Famous Arias" which features a concert with orchestra
from 1986 conducted by Miss Horne's long-time accompanist and
capable conductor, Martin Katz. Horne sails thru Gluck, Meyerbeer, Saint-Saens, Rossini and Bizet arias with her usual
flawless bel canto technique, coloratura, phrasing and consumate artistry. This is indeed a wonderful event for students of singing to study and learn many lessons from. The film is of good quality and sound and the dramatic coloratura mezzo-soprano clearly demonstrates why she is often called one of the greatest American singers of all time. There is no filmed interview with the singer and her conductor. I'd personally have enjoyed seeing Miss Horne and Mr. Katz comment on this film on the music. Miss Horne is as delightful in her interviews as she is in performance. This is a no-frills DVD.
You get the concert. Period! The DVD doesn't allow for isolating each individual selection, either, however it is still a MOST worthwhile addition to your musical library! New young singers have told me that they can get an idea of how it must have been to see Marilyn Horne in concert. This veteran enjoys being reminded and the DVD will get MUCH viewing by my students, colleagues and fellow music lovers."
