NEREA BERRAONDO
Mezzosoprano

"In her house debut, the young Spanish mezzo Nerea Berraondo also left a strong impression, displaying an interesting variety of vocal colours and a fine sense of timing in her use of words as Adrasto/Creusa" The Opera Critic magazine

"Spanish Mezzo Nerea Berraondo is well established in opera, mostly in Europe, and has also worked in early music. Her diction is superb, her balance with guitar is perfect, her tone is warm and dependably beautiful." © 2018 American Record Guide

Sor: Songs for Voice & Guitar

Fernando Sor was one of the greatest guitarists of his era and his works are still extremely popular today. His songs, however, are much less well known. They demonstrate the superb flair of Sors vocal writing, in three languages, as well as the variety of his virtuosic guitar accompaniments. The three groups of songs presented here (in addition to Sors setting of two patriotic texts) offer distinct styles of composition, ranging from arrangements of arias from Mozarts Don Giovanni to the dance elements of Spanish folk song.
