A soprano’s perspective: Anna Prohaska’s favourites
The new Digital Concert Hall playlist was created by soprano Anna Prohaska, a singer who has close artistic ties with the Berliner Philharmoniker. The selection focuses on music drama works by Bach, Wagner, Debussy and Bartók under the direction of Sir Simon Rattle. It also includes orchestral songs by Gustav Mahler, Alban Berg’s Violin Concerto and works of English Baroque music. And in a performance conducted by Claudio Abbado, Prohaska herself sings the Mozart aria “Vorrei spiegarvi, oh Dio”.
