Compilation: Anita Välkki & Ingvar Wixell - Arias from Tosca, Turandot, Aida, Attila, Don Carlo & Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen
Listen to a Sample:
I came across a rather brief concert featuring Anita Välkki and Ingvar Wixell and decided that these artists deserved their moment. So I filled out the rest of the disc with various excerpts from performances in my collection featuring these great nordic singers. Anita Välkki’s slender yet steely soprano serves her well in every excerpt from a thrilling ”O don fatale” to a sensual ”In questa reggia”. Ingvar Wixell offers the complete Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen by Mahler as well as excerpts from Attila, Simon Boccanegra, Falstaff, Tosca and Le Nozze di Figaro. This is a rare chance to get better acquainted with two great, but underrated singers.
