Sonya Yoncheva devotes her second solo album to the music of Handel, showing another facet of her wide-ranging repertoire. Being an alumna of William Christie's Le Jardin des Voix, the Baroque era formed her musical understanding at an early stage of her career, laying the foundation for her versatile and broad-reaching repertoire. Currently praised as "the best Traviata in the world at present" (Die Welt), Sonya Yoncheva is one of today's fastest rising opera stars. She is a regular guest at the world's leading opera houses including the Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House, Bayerische Staatsoper, Berlin State Opera, Wiener Staatsoper and the Opéra de Paris. A great composer of vocal music, Handel based some of his most beautiful operas and oratories on the enchanting sensibility of the feminine voice. His heroines are strong, independent women determining their own destiny attributes Sonya relates to in all respects.
