Aleksandra Kurzak on Mozart 'Concertante'

Friday, December 3, 2021

The Polish soprano presents a collection of Mozart arias that 'duet' with solo instruments of the orchestra

Aleksandra Kurzak joined Vienna's Morphing Chamber Orchestra for a new album for Aparté - 'Mozart. Concertante'. The programme culminates in a performance of the great Sinfonia concertante for violin and viola, K364, but before that she sings a selection of arias that present many of the orchestra's players in solo roles. James Jolly caught up with the soprano by Zoom in Wrocław where she was staying with her parents and her husband, the tenor Roberto Alagna.
