About

Operalia’s First Prize winner in 2017, the young South African tenor Levy Sekgapane releases his debut album, ‘Giovin fiamma’, featuring Rossini arias, on Prima Classics. He is accompanied by the Münchner Rundfunkorchester conducted by Giacomo Sagripanti (Young Conductor winner in the 2016 International Opera Awards).

Very much a rising star internationally and wonderfully suited to the Rossinian style, Levy Sekgapane brings freshness, clarity and thrilling and seductive vocal qualities to this Prima Classic recording. It combines arias from nine different Rossini operas, Il barbiere di Siviglia, L’italiana in Algeri, La Cenerentola, Semiramide, Otello, La donna del lago, Zelmira, Il Turco in Italia and Elisabetta regina d’Inghilterra. The Italian composer wrote these for three particular and very different singers: Giovanni Davide, Manuel Garcia, and Andrea Nozzari.

Besides winning Plácido Domingo’s Operalia, Levy Sekgapane has also taken the top prizes in the Belvedere Singing Competition and the Monserrat Caballé International Competition amongst others. Following his appearances as Count Almaviva in Il barbiere di Siviglia at the 2019 Glyndebourne Festival, he will make his Salzburg Festival debut in Mozart’s Idomeneo, a Peter Sellars production conducted by Teodor Currentzis, before returning once again to Rossini roles at the Teatro Massimo Palermo and the Wexford Festival Opera.

“Levy Sekgapane is a tenor with a very special, bright, youthful timbre. This young tenor can really seduce you with his voice.” – Klassik begeistert (Silverstergala-Elbphilharmonie Hamburg)
