Coloraturas (CD) – Diana Damrau

Composers: Various

Conductor: Dan Ettinger
Number of Discs: 1
Label: Erato Disques
CD Release Date: November 2, 2009

The multifaceted German coloratura soprano, who has been described as “the Meryl Streep of classical music,” shows her vocal and dramatic range with this collection of arias from the 19th and 20th centuries.

With the support from the Munchner Rundfunkorchester conducted by Dan Ettinger, Damrau showcases a repertoire that ranges from Rossini and Verdi to Stravinsky and Bernstein, from comedy to tragedy, covering four languages: German, Italian, French and English. It includes Zerbinetta’s marathon coloratura aria from Ariadne auf Naxos, one of the operas which spearheaded Damrau’s international career.

As Opera News wrote of Diana Damrau: “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them. It’s impossible to know whether Diana Damrau was born great, but she has – without question – achieved greatness; Damrau has firm technical command, unaffected mastery of characterization and beauty of tone...More, please.”

“The point with Diana that she’s fearless, impressively unpredictable, and about as far as possible from being a ‘production line’ soprano.” (Classic FM magazine)
