Overview

Even though she is a celebrated operatic star with many brilliant coloratura roles in her repertoire, Diana Damrau is also a versatile performer in many other styles of vocal music, including concert arias, art songs, pop standards, and songs from musicals and movies. Because she embraces such a wide range of material with affection and technical ease, she is able to move gracefully between the worlds of Viennese operetta, Broadway show tunes, and music from Disney films, with only the slightest indications from her well-supported vocal production and crisp diction that she is much better known for her performances of Mozart, Donizetti, Verdi, and Strauss. This 2013 album brings together songs by many of Damrau's favorite composers of light music, including Franz Lehár, George Gershwin, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein, Harold Arlen, Richard Rodgers, and many more from the golden age of operetta, musical theater, and film musicals. The arrangements are well-suited to her powerful but subtly expressive voice, and David Charles Abell leads the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra with sensitivity to the program's changing moods. Erato's sound is big and full, which gives a certain uniformity to the ensemble's sound, though Damrau is always front and center in the mix.
