Notes and Editorial Reviews

ERWIN SCHROTT has gained accolades from audiences and critics alike with his charismatic, seductive stage presence and his voluminous bass-baritone voice with a dark timbre. He has performed at all the great opera houses of the world in roles that demand an outstanding personality and radiance – he is generally regarded as the best contemporary interpreter of the great Mozartian roles of Don Giovanni, Leporello and Figaro. Schrott has performed at the world’s major opera houses including Theatro alla Scala, the Metropolitan Opera, Opera National de Paris, Royal Opera, Covent Gardens and many more.

On Arias, Erwin Schrott’s second album for Sony Classical, he transfers many of his stage triumphs to the album including one of
Read more his showpiece arias from Mozart’s Don Giovanni. Schrott devotes this new album to classics from the French and Italian bass-baritone repertoire, complimenting them with compositions by Verdi and Massenet that are rarely performed, and rounds the album off with an homage to his Spanish and Latin American roots with arias from Sorozabal and Gomes.
