Notes and Editorial Reviews
Composers of every era have drawn on the strengths, sorrows and joys of women for operas and vocal works, inspiring some of their most powerful music. From the heartbreaking tragedy of Samuel Barber’s Andromache’s Farewell to the magical storytelling of Sheherazade and the Fairy-Tale Princess, acclaimed soprano Seljan Nasibli takes us on a timeless journey through female musical ancestors whose courage is as relevant in today’s society as it has ever been.
Opening with Ravel’s Sheherazade, she immediately establishes her credentials to sing the French repertoire, her quiet passages having an innate beauty, and when the score needs passion we find a voice of vibrant quality.
