The Sopranos with Debbie Voigt: Mozart’s Sopranos

Debbie Voigt

Debbie Voigt

Saturday at 3:30 pm

According to WQXR New York: “Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart said, ‘I like an aria to fit a singer as perfectly as a well-tailored suit of clothes.’ This week, host Debbie Voigt explains why that makes Mozart’s sopranos the luckiest sopranos in the world. She also reveals why singing Mozart is good medicine for the voice, and how Mozart’s real-life experience made him particularly compassionate and understanding toward women.”

The sopranos in this episode include Kiri TeKanawa, Renée Fleming, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, and Roberta Alexander, and we hear excerpts from three Mozart operas: The Marriage of Figaro, The Magic Flute, and Don Giovanni.”
