Corinne Winters, already a star in London, is quickly earning a place among the A-list sopranos of her generation. Joined by Steven Blier, this recording explores an often neglected repertoire of Spanish music. The CD celebrates the glories of Catalan, Basque, Sephardi and Castilian music.
Canción Amorosa Songs of Spain is presented in conjunction with the 2015 Tucson Desert Song Festival
The 2015 Tucson Desert Song Festival explores the exquisite sorrow and defiant laughter of life and love, with Tamara Mumford and Anthony Dean Griffey featured in the rarely performed chamber orchestration of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde, Susan Graham singing the neglected Berlioz masterpiece La Mort d’Ophélie, and Katie Van Kooten, Heidi Grant Murphy and Angela Brower presenting the final trio from Der Rosenkavalier. All this, as well as the New York Song Festival and Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute on tour, Corinne Winters singing her first Tatiana in Arizona Opera’s Eugene Onegin, a voice-and-guitar recital featuring Rufus Müller and David Leisner, plus Carmina Burana and Poulenc’s Gloria!
