Notes and Editorial Reviews

Who are today's sopranos that possess every quality demanded for stardom individual beauty of voice, perfect technique, interpretive originality, and genuine charisma and character? Anna Prohaska definitely belongs on that list.

Singing Baroque arias by Cavalli, Handel, Monteverdi, Morley, Purcell, and Vivaldi Anna Prohaska vividly brings life to all the fairy-like characters who inhabit this extraordinary music.

For Anna Prohaska, a vocal score is a canvas, and one on which she paints and crafts every note with her distinct, colour-saturated tone.

For her GAS release "Sirene" on DG, Anna has just received an ECHO KLASSIK award in the Newcomer of the Year (vocal) category.
