Biography

Simone Kermes - Soprano
The Leipzig-born Simone Kermes is one of the most sought after sopranos internationally for dramatic coloratura roles. Her remarkable vocal range predestines her particularly for the virtuoso works of baroque masters such as Handel and Vivaldi but also for Mozart's, Haydn`s and Beethoven`s sopranos and concert arias.

I write this review only because of pure indignation at the three star review. No offence my friend but this is some of the best coloratura singing I have heard. Kermes is an outstanding singer of course and known to me through other disks in Vivaldi and Handel. This though is very special. Alto Giove in particular is just jaw dropping.

And for those that care, the quality of the recorded sound is outstanding

Only one word for this recording - it is absolutely STUNNING! I have bought this for friends and to a man (and a woman) they are raving about it. If you like baroque music and or fine singing it's a must.

I know that Simone Kermes has fans and foes and I confess happily that I belong to the first group. Nevertheless, I would like to think that this does not stop me from listening critically to her music. But no matter what I do, I have not found a single weak track in her newest album. Many arias by the likes of Hasse and Porpora, quite a few of them never before recorded, and all of them vintage Kermes. When comparing this album to her earlier ones, I do not think that her productivity so far has had any negative impact on the quality of her singing or on her success in finding relatively unknown but great music. In well-known arias like Porpora's Alto Giove Kermes also proves that she has something to add to music that has already been recorded by the likes of e.g. Jaroussky and Cencic. And in spite of all the serious music making, there is a nice little joke at the expense of the fans of vinyl in track one.

I love Simone Kermes for several reasons - her amazing vocal range and splendid pyrotechnics, her obviously quirky personality and presentation and the fact that she keeps churning out discs full of terrific baroque music by composers seldom (though more often than they used to be) recorded. It is true that she does like to show off her high notes possibly a little too much but it is very exciting! 'Dramma' is the third such anthology that I own and its every bit as splendid as its predecessors. There are some truly splendid pieces here. I especially enjoy the stately pomp of 'Se dopo ria procella' from Porpora's 'Germanico' and the elegant yet virtuoso of the same composer's 'Vedra turbato il mare' from 'Mitridate'. Then there's the splendid martial 'Per trionfar pugnando' from the little known Majo. La Magnifico Comunita (?) provide excellent accompaniment in what is an altogether splendid disc.
