Following her triumphs on the stages of the Salzburg and Bayreuth festivals and at Covent Garden, Asmik Grigorian now belongs to the world's vocal elite. She joins Alpha Classics for several projects and presents here her very first recital, devoted to one of her favorite composers, Sergei Rachmaninoff. This album, entitled Dissonance, assembles vocal works carefully chosen by the soprano for the contrasts they generate when grouped together: 'Most of Rachmaninoff's songs really call for operatic power. In fact, he wrote mini-operas lasting a few minutes.' While this album is called Dissonance, in reference to the 'internal conflicts' that punctuate these songs, the duo formed by the Lithuanian singer and her pianist compatriot Lukas Geniusas is one of total consonance!
