“Perhaps the leading coloratura soprano in the world right now.” (The New York Sun)
For her second recording as an exclusive Virgin Classics artist, soprano sensation Diana Damrau has chosen to sing a remarkably varied selection of concert and operatic arias by Mozart, ranging from the bravura (Donna Anna, Konstanze, Donna Elvira) to the more serious (Pamina) to the lighter soprano (soubrette roles such as Susanna, Blonde, and others).
Damrau has gained international acclaim for her Mozart renditions, alternating the roles of Pamina and The Queen of the Night at the Met last fall, as well as Konstanze in Die Entführung later in the season. Her breathtaking rendition of The Queen of the Night Aria from her first CD was also a highlight among critics. In fact, that album, Arie di Bravura, received international critical acclaim, rave reviews, and was granted Opera News Magazine’s prestigious Editors Choice award.
