Details

Anna Prohaska (Austria) is one of the most versatile and sought-after singers of our time who is equally confident in the classical-romantic, ancient and modern repertoires. Anna’s creative interests span several centuries of vocal music history — from operas by Monteverdi, Rameau, Purcell and Handel to stage hits by Mozart, Verdi and Bizet, German Lieder, modernist vocal cycles, and world premieres of the newest compositions.

In recent years, the singer has been researching female images in the vocal world. Her concert programmes are often built around certain feminine archetypes, such as Siren (the eponymous 2011 album) or Eve (the recent curated project “Paradise Lost”). The vocal and instrumental evening prepared for Dom Radio brings this research further and is built around the image of Ophelia. The compositions dedicated to Shakespeare’s heroine by Shostakovich, Brahms, Berlioz and Richard Strauss correspond in the programme to the romantic and baroque works united by the theme “The girl who welcomed Death”.

Anna Prohaska was born into a famous Austrian artistic family. Among her ancestors are several generations of composers, conductors, singers, opera directors and art critics. Having made her debut at the beginning of the new millennium, Anna regularly participates in major festivals, performs on the world’s most important stages (La Scala, Covent Garden, Berlin Staatsoper, Bolshoi Theatre, etc.) and collaborates with leading musicians, including Claudio Abbado, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Daniel Barenboim, Pierre Boulez, Gustavo Dudamel, Zubin Mehta, Kent Nagano, Simon Rattle, Mariss Jansons, and others.

Participants:

Anna Prohaska, Vadim Teifikov, Ekaterina Romanova, Marina Antonova, Evgeny Rumiantsev, Alexander Prozorov, Maria Shabashova, Konstantin Schenikov-Arkharov
