Nathalie Stutzmann
"Prima Donna" 

 Review from www.prestoclassical.co.uk


Considered one of the rare authentic alto voices of our time, singer Nathalie Stutzmann also devotes part of her career to conducting, which she studied with two exceptional masters: Jorma Panula (who trained Sir Simon Rattle in particular) and Seiji Ozawa.

With the founding of the Orfeo 55 ensemble in 2009, a lifelong dream of Nathalie Stutzmann's came true: having her own chamber orchestra.

Devoted to Antonio Vivaldi, Prima Donna is the first disc where Nathalie Stutzmann holds the twin roles of singer and conductor.

In an era when the public acclaimed castrati, Vivaldi the nonconformist preferred the fascinating timbre of female contralti to whom he accorded a place of honour in his operas. With Prima Donna, Nathalie Stutzmann brilliantly illustrates this historic originality by bringing together the most beautiful arias, either famous or unrecorded, that Vivaldi composed for these adored singers.

Nathalie Stutzmann conducts Orfeo 55 with the musical rigour, expressive freedom and emotional intensity that are hallmarks of her reputation as a singer.
