Deutsche Grammophon's recent release of Le nozze di Figaro from the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, starring Sonya Yoncheva as the Countess, has been nominated for a 2017 GRAMMY Award in the "Best Opera Recording" category. Her unforgettable portrayal was lauded by audiences and critics alike:
"The recording impresses above all with the two female leads . . . The Contessa di Almaviva of Sonya Yoncheva is a class of its own. Her lyrically expansive and capable soprano with a highly attractive Eigentimbre, the elegance of the presentation, the perfect phrasing, the engaging of the ensembles, the playfulness, to be taken with all the technical hurdles, all of this is a singular dream. Every inch a diva. "The" Dove sono "becomes a human and artistic manifesto." (Online-Merker)
Maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads the Chamber Orchestra of Europe on this recording, which highlights a stellar cast including Luca Pisaroni as Figaro, Thomas Hampson as the Count, Angela Brower as Cherubino, Anne Sofie von Otter sings Marcellina, Christiane Karg is Susanna, Rolando Villazón stars as Basilio.
