20 years after her critically acclaimed début at the Salzburg Festival as Susanna In Mozart’s Le Nozze Di Figaro, Dorothea Röschmann releases her first solo Mozart CD including among others famous arias from Don Giovanni and Le Nozze Di Figaro.

The album features the Swedish Symphony Orchestra with Daniel Harding conducting.


Dorothea Röschmann has sung all the Mozart roles represented here at either the Vienna Staatsoper, the Metropolitan Opera. She brings a subtle dramatic understanding to each of these women and, where apt, lives them with no-holds-barred intensity. Most impressive of all are the two final tracks, the (partially) chastened Vitellia’s scena of remorse, where Röschmann triumphantly scales the music’s fearful heights and depths, and one of Mozart’s most penetrating concert arias, Bella mia fiamma. Röschmann flawlessly negotiates its chromatic minefields and brings a moving humanity to this scene of a man awaiting his death, culminating in a climax of terrifying desperation.

– Gramophone

Röschmann is at the height of her powers, with a strong voice which she can rein in, and without the coy pecking that German sopranos have often indulged in in Mozart. The trouble is that she is so winning an artist that almost all the arias made me want to listen to the complete opera from which they come, with her in the relevant role.
