Her voice, although of a scale and colour which I find hard to imagine in anything other than eighteenth-century repertoire, is rich and full, obviously very flexible and well endowed with high notes, but also retains its fullness as it descends to the bottom of her range. Waiting earnestly for an opera company to do this wonderful opera by Righini. Please click here to manage your MP3 cart content. So I do not quite agree that Ms Damrau is ‘another’ promising new soprano. On the lieder side, certainly a concert in my part of the world!

Mozart, Righini, Salieri: Arie Di Bravura

That Damrau excels in coloratura is not in dispute, and with a strong reputation aided in diana damrau arie di bravura part by spectacular performances as Mozart’s Queen of the Night on both sides of the Atlantic, it is not difficult to see why arle decision was made to showcase her facility in bravura passages.

Yes, she hits all the notes, and negotiates the elaborate and difficult coloratura, but the timbre of her voice was a bit off-putting. The programming of opera arias chosen on the basis that all of them are florid is already limiting, but the fact that all the pieces are daina three composers who were close contemporaries, and writing for mostly similar audiences, has led to a rather monotonous listening experience.

Arie di bravura – Diana Damrau – Soprano

It is a shame that only two tracks are available from Righini – the Mozarts diana damrau arie di bravura so often recorded while the Salieri, in my opinion, offers nothing more than an inundating coloratura mish-mash of vocal gymnastics despite the well-intentioned efforts an effort previously also undertaken by Cecelia Bartoli to revive this previously maligned composer. But when only one aria out of thirteen is slow for its duration, namely ‘Ombra dolente’ from Righini’s Il natal d’Apollo, and that one aria, aside from some unusual orchestration, is of little interest, one cannot help but feel the bravura concept has got in the way of an opportunity to reveal range in the output of these composers which is presumably very extensive.

On the lieder side, certainly a concert in my part of the world!

Qual’aure io spiro” from the opera Il natal d’Apollo, I could virtually envision the heavens opening and gleams of wondrous light pervading the clouds and illuminating the earth. The reason simply being that given such superb artistry and talent, I do not think this singer is currently being rated high enough.


MP3 Music, November 6, “Please retry”. So she rightly included those two of her earlier calling cards in this album, but I tend to agree with her that she should not be singing this role too often, nor too long just like the case of Lucia Popp before, another great Queen of the Night.

She has enough temperament and dramatic intention to be a gripping Queen of the Night, as evidenced by the inclusion of both arias, but there is a slight tendency to loose engagement in more plaintive or even-tempered numbers. While the focus of this album, in the words of the singer herself, is to revive her personal favourite composer for the voice, Salieri; the real reason why I found this album to be a treasure has to be the discovery of a first-rate classical composer of opera by the name of Vincenzo Righini.
