Notes and Editorial Reviews

Coloratura soprano Emma Matthews is a Principal of the Australian Opera. She started her career as an Opera Australia young artist in 1993. She possesses, in abundance, a natural upper range and the vocal agility of a leading bel canto. On this recording, Emma works with Slovenian conductor Marko Letonja, who is Chief Conductor of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and Music Director of the Strasbourg Philharmonic Orchestra in France. The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra has a fine recording pedigree, and is integral to ABC Classics’ Australian Composer Series as well as being heavily involved in Hyperion’s Romantic Piano Concerto Series.
