An exquisite recording by the wonderful Mezzo-soprano Anna Stéphany and the current laureates of the HSBC Académie- Festival international d’art lyrique d’Aix-en-Provence, the Labyrinth Ensemble, the disc features Luciano Berio’s Folk Songs, Falla’s Psyché on a poem of Georges-Jean Aubry, and Ravel’s Histoires naturelles with text by Jules Renard.
Labyrinth Ensemble, formed from members of the Zürich Opera Orchestra in 2013, where Anna was a member of the opera ensemble. With an aim to be original and fresh in their approach to chamber music performance, they explore standard and lesser-known repertoire from new perspectives.
Anna returns to Zürich Opera next month singing Idamante in a new production of Idomeneo.
The album will be released in Europe on 12th January 2018 and in the UK on 19th January 2018, and the disc can be purchased through Outhere Music and Amazon UK. Listen now through Alpha Classics and Spotify.
