Great Operatic Arias, Volume 20: Christine Brewer, Volume 2

Chandos - CHAN 3159

Utwory na płycie:
‘Hats off, gentlemen. A diva. The real, rare, wondrous thing. Her name is Christine Brewer.’ So wrote the

London Evening Standard on Christine Brewer’s first volume of arias on Opera in English.

We were delighted when the internationally renowned soprano Christine Brewer agreed to record some of

her favourite repertoire pieces on her first recital disc for Chandos in 2005. No surprise that it was a huge

success – so we were even more delighted when she returned to record this second volume – repertoire

which you would never hear in a single concert or operatic performance, but here capturing Brewer’s

glorious range, wonderfully supported by Judith Howarth, Timothy Robinson and the London

Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by David Parry.

Christine Brewer’s earlier recital (CHAN 3127) introduced into this series the dramatic soprano voice and

included in its programme, as does its successor, arias from Gluck’s Alceste and Wagner’s Tannhäuser.

In a previous age both operas were sung by Kirsten Flagstad, by general consent the greatest heroicdramatic

soprano of all. Christine Brewer now adds one of the most formidable challenges in the

repertoire, Leonore’s solo in Act I of Beethoven’s Fidelio. Otherwise, the two significant extensions are

in time, backward to Handel and forward to Britten and Menotti.

Between 16 March and 8 May, Christine Brewer will sing Brünnhilde in Wagner’s Ring Cycle at the

Metropolitan Opera in New York.
