Julie Fuchs (Soprano)
Julie Fuchs has established herself as one of the most exciting opera singers of her generation, astonishing audiences in the world’s greatest opera houses and concert halls. She is also the winner of three Victoires de la Musique (including 2021 Opera Performer of the Year) and won second prize at Operalia. Her repertoire ranges from baroque music to contemporary music, with an emphasis on Mozart and the heroines of the Bel Canto. In 2021, Julie was appointed Chevalier de l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
On her first album on Sony Classical, she presents us with a wonderful Mozart recital entitled “Amadè,” which she recently recorded at the Château de Fontainebleau, accompanied by the Balthasar Neumann Orchestra under the baton of the great conductor Thomas Hengelbrock.
“This album is all about Mozart’s deep love for female sopranos. It shows how the composer, thanks to his deep understanding of human emotions, was able to capture the soul of these women with an intimacy that still touches us today,” emphasizes Pedro Beriso, pianist, conductor and Mozart specialist, who tells us his impressions about the music presented by Julie. Indeed, “Amadè is the Mozart of intimacy”, says Julie Fuchs, and the soprano, with her natural elegance and extraordinary voice, perfectly succeeds in accompanying the most beautiful arias composed by Mozart, giving him back the love he felt for his sopranos.
