About

Siv Wennberg is one the greatest dramatic sopranos of our age. On the CDs issued in the series, Siv Wennberg demonstrates an enormous musical breadth, equally at home in the dramatic episodes as in the wonderful world of romances.

This performance of Verdi’s Un ballo in maschera from the Stockholm Opera was in Swedish. But this should not deter anyone! The combination of Siv Wennberg and Nicolai Gedda makes this one of the truly great performances. Gedda’s voice is of course unique, as one of the most genuine tenors ever. The duets are beautifully crafted and Eri Klas makes the most of the orchestral writing.
