Review by Luukas September 15, 2015 (3 of 3 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
This is carefully selected collection of the modern orchestral songs for soprano. The topic of the album, "Being Beauteous", is also the name of the two songs here.
Komsi's voice is loud and clear: she is absolutely one of the greatest sopranos today. The all songs were unknown for me but Komsi was trustworthy "guide".
The wide-ranging 5.1 surround sound was warm and deep: very impressive, indeed. If you haven't this disc yet, buy it right now.
