As for "The Art of the Prima Donna," there cannot be any admirers who haven’t already got this, so for newcomers to Sutherland on disc one can only say -- listen and wonder. Her voice, even throughout its range right up to the high E, always keeping its natural quality, is heard at its early fullness.... Despite all the recordings that have come since, I cannot imagine anyone, coming to it for the first time, being disappointed in "The Art of the Prima Donna." ---Editorial Reviews, barnesandnoble.com

This 1991 CD extracts 50 minutes from the 1962 double LP album Command Performance. Also included is a 12-minute excerpt from Sutherland's 1969 studio recording of Meyerbeer's Les Huguenots. All of this album shows Dame Joan singing excellently. The only snag is that most of this repertoire doesn't really show off her strengths. The excerpts from Oberon, Le Cid, I Pagliacci, I masnardieri, and Luisa Miller, while engaging, give only glimmers of the magic Sutherland could bring to music. The Shadow Song from Meyerbeer's Dinaorah is rather nice though. The best arias are "Come tacer... Vorri spiegarvi il giubilo" from Rossini's La cambiale di matrimonio and "Eccomi pronta... Deh, se un'urna," the finale of Bellini's Beatrice di Tenda. The latter was excellent enough to be included on Decca's 2001 2CD tribute to Sutherland's work: La Stupenda ~ The Supreme Voice of Joan Sutherland. The concluding scene from Les Huguenots is pleasant, particularly the lovely quartet portion. Overall, I would say that all but Sutherland's most dedicated admirers can safely pass this album by. The best track, the Beatrice excerpt available on "La Stupenda," should be enough to satisfy the general collector. ---Aronne

Sutherland's collaboration with Pavarotti began in 1966 with Beatrice di Tenda. These duets are highlights from the great partnership of Pavarotti & Sutherland, excerpted from their studio recordings of Lucia di Lammermoor, Rigoletto, L'Elisir D'Amore, Maria Stuarda, La Fille du Régiment, and I Puritani.

Sutherland's first partner in Italian opera on records was Renato Cioni: and she might have done much worse. Nicola Monti, Carlo Bergonzi Pierre Duval and John Alexander followed. The collaboration with Pavarotti began in 1966 with Beatrice di Tenda, and continued up to the Norma issued last year... Those whose mental picture of Sutherland's voice has been formed by her singing during the last ten years or so will enjoy hearing the clearer, steadier tones of her middle years. Among Pavarotti's admirers will be some who will come to this, as I have done, directly from his Carnegie Hall recital of 1987, and for them it will be impressive to observe how the 20-year gap between that and the earliest of the excerpts (La fille du regiment) has brought little of the change and decay that afflicts ordinary mortals. In these extracts he also appears as the more expressive of the two singers, who are generally well matched, sympathetic in the quieter, more reflective passages and exciting on the high Cs (and even higher).

Their work with Richard Bonynge has of course been an integral part of the partnership with each other and this too goes well, with a satisfying balance of rhythmic tautness and lyrical flexibility. — Gramophone [3/1989], arkivmusic.com

That Decca produced such a loving and thorough anthology as The Art of Joan Sutherland in the lean times of 2004 is a testament to Joan Sutherland''s artistic stature and commercial success. She is among the elite few opera stars to have enjoyed both in equal measure, and whose discographies have remained available for many years without interruption. Indeed, Sutherland was among the greatest singers of her time. The doleful beauty of her voice could express extremes of both tragedy and sublimity, and her high notes were virtually unmatched for their clarity and brilliance -- qualities that made her an ideal interpreter of bel canto music, the music on which her fame rests.

The Art of Joan Sutherland covers that bel canto territory (Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, etc.) well, but what sets it apart from other Sutherland collections is how thoroughly it covers the other aspects of her recording career: the six volumes include everything from Handelian opera and oratorio, Wagner, Mozart, Grand opera, and French art song, some of it never before released on CD. The upshot is a far more extensive and far-reaching tribute to Sutherland''s singing than has yet been offered. For that reason alone, Sutherland devotees will find this a valuable collection, and an ear-opening experience. Those looking for a greatest-hits collection, however -- something more tightly focused on the music bearing Sutherland''s unique stamp of excellence -- might do better with a smaller collection of arias. There is some unevenness to the collection. Some cuts feel perfunctory and unspecial, like her "Liebestod" from Wagner''s "Tristan und Isolde," conducted, as are the majority of the tracks, by her husband Richard Bonynge. It has no oomph, no grandeur, and no sense of pacing or drama. There are also a few, like her "Voi che sapete" and "Deh, vieni non tardar" from Mozart''s "The Marriage of Figaro," that simply aren''t suited to her vocally -- the first is too low for her, and the second calls for a much simpler sound. But the amazing thing about The Art of Joan Sutherland is just how much of it is great.

Her Handel, recorded during the very early years of her career, is fresh and stylistically impressive. The two discs of French arias -- Sutherland''s own favorites according to her liner notes -- reveal an interpretive flexibility that few singers could match. The well-seasoned joyfulness of her "Depuis le jour" (Charpentier''s "Louise") is a striking comparison with the childlike glee of her Jewel Song ("Faust") and "Ah! Je veux vivre" ("Roméo et Juliette") of Gounod. Throw in some Offenbach bon bons -- all sung with giddy abandon -- and you begin to understand what made Sutherland so special. The packaging is attractive but minimal, including only brief introductory notes and omitting texts and translations completely. But it represents an excellent value in music, and a fitting tribute to one of opera''s most beloved stars. --- Allen Schrott, Rovi
