One of opera's brightest young stars, Russian soprano Aida Garifullina, has released her eagerly-awaited debut album on Decca Classics. It follows a hugely successful year which has seen her light up the stage of the Vienna State Opera, perform for millions at the Bastille Day Concert in Paris, tour the US with Andrea Bocelli and even appear on the big screen opposite Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant in the acclaimed film, Florence Foster Jenkins. Recorded in Vienna with the ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien and conductor Cornelius Meister, the disc reflects her life and musical tastes as well as her Tatar ancestry. It showcases her stunning voice with works by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov and Rimsky-Korsakov, as well as folk tunes and some of her personal favorite songs.
