Every track on this CD contains a beautiful melody, many of them easily recognizable, all of them exuding tranquility. “O mio babbino caro” from Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi opens the disc, with Bell delicately accompanied by a harp and spinning the long melody with great sensitivity. Bellini’s “Casta diva” from Norma lives up to its reputation as the epitome of bel canto in Bell’s hands; his violin sings. The middle movement of Mozart’s 21st Piano Concerto takes well to the violin, and Debussy’s “The Girl with the Flaxen Hair” is played with great warmth and sensuality. It would be easy to turn a recital like this into treacle, but Bell is wise enough to realize that the music is already sweet enough and he plays with great reserve and a minimum of sentimental slides. The light accompaniments always support, with woodwinds prominent but used with grace. This CD, in short, is a beauty: a fine gift, a lovely mood setter. –Robert Levine
