New release: Träume – now available for purchase
Jenufa Gleich’s debut solo album Träume is now available for purchase. Released by Stone Records, the album features arias and song by Richard Wagner, including famous arias from characters such as Brünnhilde (The Ring Cycle), Senta (The Flying Dutchman), and Elisabeth (Tannhäuser), as well as an aria from his less well-known early opera Die Feen. It concludes with the exquisite Wesendonck Lieder.
The disc explores the bel canto aspect of Wagners often-heroic music, taking its cue from Wagner’s desire for his works to be a German form of this Italian style. Fabrice Bollon conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. Ms. Gleich’s performance has received critical praise by Music Web International heralding “Jenufa Gleich throws herself into the music with wild abandon which brings the whole thrillingly to life; and again the orchestra under Fabrice Bollon prove themselves to be thoroughly suited to the Wagnerian ethos.” For more information and to purchase the recording, click here.
