Julia Lezhneva: Alleluia
Mozart: Exsultate, jubilate, K 165 (14:13)
Julia Lezhneva, soprano; Il Giardino Armonico / Giovanni Antonini
Still in her early twenties, Julia Lezhneva astounds audiences wherever she sings. Praised for her ‘pure tone’ (Opernwelt), her brief appearance at the 2010 Classical Brits in London, at the invitation of Kiri Te Kanawa, was the talk of the evening, and since then her career has rocketed. This is her debut album for Decca Classics: four sacred motets by Handel, Vivaldi, Porpora and Mozart accompanied by Il Giardino Armonico and Giovanni Antonini.
