About

A fabulous selection of famous soprano arias, linked by the universal themes of love and humanity. Highlights from popular operas by Puccini (Tosca; Manon Lescaut), Verdi (The Force of Destiny), Wagner (Lohengrin), Beethoven (Fidelio), Giordano (Andrea Chénier), Cilea (Adriana Lecouvreur) and Barber (Andromache’s Farewell).

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with acclaimed conductor Grzegorz Nowak are joined for this new recording by versatile British spinto soprano Katerina Mina to celebrate the strong, determined and spiritual heroines of these well-loved operas. This disc also includes the world première recording of two lyrical pieces by contemporary Swiss composer, Stephan Hodel (Angel of Fire and Love).

‘Katerina Mina’s crystal clear voice exploited the acoustics of St James’s Piccadilly perfectly, soaring through the building, down the aisles and up to the high ceiling… The singing was heavenly.’ – The Daily Express
