About

Finnish opera star Camilla Nylund sings masterpieces from the Great American Songbook in this unique collaboration with the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra under their music director Marin Alsop. The classic songs in this film were specially arranged to suit Nylund’s performance style, vocals and personality, as if they had been written for her. This special edition includes a Blu-ray video of the concert film-project by André Heller in black and white, plus an audio CD of the recordings.

Camilla Nylund is an admired classical artist who has sung on many albums on labels such as Ondine, Orfeo, OehmsClassics and BR Klassik. She is also one of the most in-demand dramatic sopranos around the world and has performed at the Metropolitan Opera, Wiener Staatsoper, Royal Opera House, San Francisco Opera, and Bayerische Staatsoper, among others. Bachtrack.com described her as a ‘radiant Marschallin’ in her performance in Simon Rattle’s Der Rosenkavalier.

Nylund is accompanied here by the ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra and their chief conductor, Marin Alsop – one of Naxos’s star performers. Alsop’s discography includes acclaimed Naxos recordings of symphonies by Brahms with the London Philharmonic, Dvořák with the Baltimore Symphony, and Prokofiev with the São Paulo Symphony.

Artistic director André Heller is an internationally successful multimedia artist with works ranging from garden artworks, cabinets of curiosities, literary bestsellers, large flying and floating sculptures, to the avant-garde amusement park Luna Luna. In addition to directing innovative shows, plays, circuses, films and opera productions, and an award-winning career as a singer and songwriter, he has also created fire spectacles, labyrinths and museum buildings.
