Product Description & Reviews
Krassimira Stoyanova, one of the most renowned Verdi sopranos today, now presents her newest solo CD with arias by the composer. Some of these roles she has already sung all over the world; others she will be singing in the coming years. From Otello we naturally find Desdemonas Willow Song and Ave Maria, since this is her most famous role. In Verdi's operas after Schiller, Don Carlo and Luisa Miller, Krassimira Stoyanova gave her celebrated debuts as Elisabetta and Luisa Miller at the State Operas of Munich and Vienna respectively. Since then she has become especially known both for her ability to shape a perfect, broad melodic arch full of expression, and for her emphatic characterisation of these two women, caught as they are between love and duty. The two Leonoras in Verdis Il trovatore and La forza del destino make more dramatic demands on the voice, and Krassimira Stoyanova is approaching these roles in a manner both prudent and composed. The roles that Krassimira Stoyanova has sung less frequently up to now (though no less successfully) include the title roles of Giovanna dArco and La traviata, excerpts from which can also be heard on this CD. Despite the differences between these roles, one marvels once again at Krassimira Stoyanovas artistry, at her unmistakable, unmannered, unostentatious, refined soprano voice, as she does justice both to the girlishness of Verdi's Joan of Arc and to the wrenching farewell offered us by the dying Violetta Valéry.
