Product Notes

In all other respects, the prima donnas- the title figures and central heroines- stand at the center of the spotlight. However, Handel and Vivaldi also had a special affection for the "women in the shadows" - for the queens, the servants or the spurned lovers, mostly sung in female alto voice. They were given breathtakingly beautiful arias: full of lament, sensuality, vengefulness or fury. In recent years, the German contralto Julia Böhme has developed into one of the most in-demand performers of 17th and 18th century music. Her vocal elegance and expressiveness, historically sourced style and unique timbre are just as characteristic of her as a performer as her dramatic intensity and versatility. Concerts and opera productions have taken her to the Dresden Music Festival, the Vienna Musikverein, Prague, Leipzig, Halle, Amsterdam, Brussels, Bruges, Versailles, the Laieszhalle Hamburg and the Leipzig Gewandhaus.
