Simone Kermes erhält den Echo Klassik 2011 als Sängerin des Jahres. Die aus Dresden stammende Sängerin wurde für ihre CD "Colori d´amore" ausgezeichnet, die Publikum und Presse gleichermaßen begeisterte: "eines der besten Volkalrecitals der letzten Jahre", urteilte Fono Forum. Die "Best of Simone Kermes" zeigt die "Queen of Baroque" in der gesamten Bandbreite ihres Könnens - mit entdeckenswerter Musik von Händel, Bononcini, Hasse, Haydn, Scarlatti, Pergolesi u. a. - lauter entdeckenswerte, oft völlig zu Unrecht vergessene Arienperlen.

Equally known for his live performances and musicological work in establishing new performing practices for early opera, Alan Curtis enjoyed a fruitful career. A scholar, as well as a conductor and harpsichordist, Curtis edited several important works with an appreciation for authenticity, effective performance, and – in the case of opera – stage-worthiness. Several of his best recordings were issued in the 1990s and in the new millennium. Curtis studied first at Michigan State University and attained his bachelor's degree there in 1955.

The first half of the 18th century saw an insatiable demand for new opera seria, or dramma per musica, in Venice, Rome, Milan and, principally, London, where composer and teacher Nicola Porpora ran the Opera of the Nobility, putting poor Handel very firmly (though temporarily) in the shade. This collection of castrato arias includes six astonishing discoveries, many recorded for the first time, from Porpora, Johann Aldolf Hasse and Giuseppe de Majo, sung by the beguilingly agile Simone Kermes with delightfully pungent playing from La Magnifica Comunità.

Amor profano is the follow-up project to the spectacular album Amor sacro that the soprano Simone Kermes recorded with Andrea Marcon and his Venice Baroque Orchestra. Amor sacro received rave critical reviews, with The San Francisco Chronicle hailing, "soprano Simone Kermes leads the way in this choice performance of four sacred motets by Vivaldi…another exemplary Vivaldi excavation" and the Star Ledger proclaiming, "Kermes brings Vivaldi's heart-easing lyricism alive with far richer expressivity…Kermes looks to be a real vocal star." Unlike Amor sacro, which consisted of sacred, non-liturgical repertoire that was performed during Mass or Vespers, Amor profano presents a worldly repertoire with a selection of Vivaldi's most dramatic and easily accessible "Canti d'amore e di Guerra." These arias from Vivaldi's lesser-known or virtually unknown operas have been especially chosen for the charismatic, dazzling voice of Simone Kermes and the lively playing of the VBO under Andrea Marcon. The album includes a number of world-premiere recordings and thus contributes to the continuing discovery of the composer and the "Vivaldi boom" of our times; but first and foremost, the recording is a sheer joy. This music has rhythm, beat and high energy, which is enhanced by the mastery of Simone Kermes and the Venice Baroque Orchestra, whose music-making leaves one breathless.

The Album explores the artistic legacies of the two legendary singers (Francesca Cuzzoni and Faustina Bordoni) and the heights of inspiration to which their rivalry moved the leading composers of their era. A thrilling recording, in which Simone Kermes and Vivica Genaux sing arias and duets composed at the height of the rivalry between Eighteenth-Century singers Francesca Cuzzoni and Faustina Bordoni.

With her new album Simone Kermes presents her dedication to bel canto. Despite the title the Baroque soprano hasn’t suddenly switched from one voice type to another but is simply following her own interpretation of this term, arguing that bel canto is “inconceivable without reference to the Baroque tradition”.

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.

Conductor Michael Hofstetter does a beautiful job bringing out the nuances from the Orchestra of Ludwigsburg Schlossfestspiele in Il Trovatore. This is evident from the thunderous roll of the timpani at the beginning of the opera, and the careful phrasing throughout the album. Every dynamic is observed, and the result is the high drama crucial to Verdi.
