A 2021 release from the French contralto and conductor. Nathalie Stutzmann is considered one of the most outstanding musical personalities of our time. Proclaimed "the best contralto in the world"(BR Klassik), Nathalie has spent her career performing with the world's greatest conductors and orchestras.

REVIEW:

Stutzmann’s deep burgundy contralto, like a freakishly rich, wide-ranging countertenor, is the perfect fit for this repertoire. Her characterisation and vocal colouring are always true and specific. She also dares emotional extremes. You’ll look far to find a more powerful characterisation of ‘Gelido in ogni vena’,
Read more voice and ice-cold strings challenging each other to new heights of anguish.
