    Let's see: Mozart. Puccini. Verdi. Bellini. Donizetti. Domingo. Renata Scotto. Covent Garden. With that list of names on display, anyone who appreciates classical music, and certainly anyone who enjoys opera, should be after these recordings if they don't already have them. In that regard, I find it puzzling that the average rating is a frankly pathetic 2.5 stars, after ratings by six separate users we're to believe. I usually prefer full recordings of operas myself but I admit I'm a neophyte as yet and this a good overview of some of the most beautiful and powerful arias in Italian opera. If you like opera, I think you'll enjoy these recordings (unless, perhaps, you more drawn to Wagnerian operas). I'm also doubting that anyone who doesn't like opera would buy and listen to this album. It's clearly not meant for you if you know you don't like opera. That's why the rating puzzles me: if you like opera, what's not to love, or at least like, here, and if you don't like opera, why are you here? If you want an overview of some Italian opera, ignore the low rating and go for it, as I did. Renata Scotto's performances on the selections from Madama Butterfly are transcendent. That recordings is definitely on my list. And I'm particularly an admirer of the works of both Mozart and Puccini, so with selections ranging from La Boheme to Figaro, it's quite interesting to hear how the different composers' styles operate in the operatic mode. I don't like all of the pieces equally and tend to prefer sopranos to male singing parts some of the time. But this is beautiful music, worth the five stars easily.

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
