She is one of the greatest stars of the international opera world: Diana Damrau. The soprano from the Bavarian town of Günzburg thrills audiences in her roles ranging from Rossini and Donizetti to Verdi and to Bizet and Richard Strauss. Besides her activities on the operatic stage, she unswervingly pursues her love of singing lieder. She loses herself completely in these mini-dramas: seductive, revelling, brilliant and vocally impressive with a rich range of colour and discriminating interpretation of the texts. During recent years, she has been performing with the French harp virtuoso Xavier de Maistre to demonstrate that his instrument is a charming alternative to the piano. The gentle pastel sounds and shimmering chords of the harp add a magical lightness to the lieder and turn each and every one of these delicate musical creations into a special event!
