In her first recital album devoted entirely to Italian opera, soprano Diana Damrau takes the golden age of bel canto, the early 19th century, as the starting point for an exploration of theatrical and musical passion that leads to the high-octane verismo drama of the 1890s. She sees Fiamma del Belcanto – ‘the flame of beautiful singing’ – as a torch of musical emotions, handed down by great Italian composers from one generation to the next.

Bel canto operas demand considerable virtuosity of the star singer, but also great refinement and controlled intensity of expression. As “the leading coloratura soprano in the world” (New York Sun), Diana Damrau rises to the challenge. “The variety of techniques – the incredible high notes and low notes, the wide range of dynamics and tone-color in Donizetti or Bellini – are never ends in themselves: they are always the expression of real feelings,” she says. “The important thing to bear in mind with Italian opera is that its point of departure is the principle that opera is an art form that deals with real feelings, takes into account our desires and makes us gaze into those abysses that in everyday life we would prefer not to dwell on.”
