20.04.2018 * Voice & Fortepiano * Belcanto Song Recital

Voice & Fortepiano * Belcanto Song Recital

The aesthetics and vocals of bel canto are usually associated with the Italian operatic context, but their spirit and expression are also found in varied repertoires outside the opera universe. This recital proposes a reunion with “da camera” songs for voice and piano composed between the century  XIX and beginning of the century XX, interpreted with the accompaniment of a pianoforte, the instrument that preceded the modern piano.

The songs included in this program refer to bel canto expressions in an Italian and French language repertoire, which have in common the elegance and fluid interpretation of the vocal coloratura, characteristics of this style.

Although the term bel canto has not been used before the middle of the century. XIX, was present, as an interpretative style, from the end of the century. XVIII, also influencing the chamber music. Among the composers featured are Italians Vincenzo Bellini (1801-35), and four of his ariette (composed in the 1820s), Luigi Denza (1846-1922), composer of the famous “Funiculì, Funiculà”, and Paolo Tosti (1846-1916) that, like Denza, was celebrated by songs of style Neapolitan.

The program also includes works by the French composer of Venezuelan origin, Reynaldo Hahn (1874-1947), who dedicated himself mainly to the composition of vocal repertoire.

MANON LESCAUT – G. Puccini

* STAATSOPER  HANNOVER – GERMANY *


… “The Portuguese tenor, Paulo Ferreira, does not depict “Des Grieux” as a tenor who only throws himself powerfully into the high notes. Rather, he finds the delicate tones of the role, sending a lot of feeling over the orchestra pit, and builds it so that the second half of the evening he is in top form.” … by J. Rüth in “Der Opernfreund”, 11/11/2017

LA GIOCONDA – A. Ponchielli

* MALMÖ OPERA – SWEDEN *


…”In the first place is Paulo Ferreira as Enzo. His exceptional singing technique and his metallic timbre, with his “sobbing” that make remember Caruso, perfectly match of what we can be expected from an Italian opera tenor, with specialization in the late-romantic repertoire. On top of this, there is an apparently indestructible self-confidence.” …von Dr. Martin Knust in Operapoint.com

…” The tenor Paulo Ferreira fires off the most penetrating high notes, creating with his passion a splendid atmosphere”… in South Swedish paper (Sydsvenskan)

…”At the opening night Enzo was sung by Paulo Ferreira with great balanced voice, glowing and full of feeling.”… in Swedish Day paper (Svenska Dagbladet (SvD)

…”Enzo was sung by the Portuguese tenor Paulo Ferreira. He has everything that a tenor part needs, as “Italianitta” (tears in the voice) … You can’t be more than impressed.”… in Expressen

…”Paulo Ferreira created an Enzo with his powerful Tenor voice with real italian sound and acting worth to remember.”… in Skanska Dagblatet by Lars-E. Larsson
