In drama as well as in musical theatre, the monologue is often used to express and visualise the smallest nuances of emotions - even those that cannot or should not be expressed.

In this recording, the mezzo-soprano Anna Bonitatibus and her piano accompanist Adele D'Aronzo devote themselves to this very interesting aspect of opera and song culture.

On the basis of selected works by Donizetti, Respighi, Rossini, Zingarelli, Viardot and Wagner, the diverse narrative and expressive approaches of the monologue are exemplified.

"Throughout the program, she is an excellent interpreter, vocally impressive and immensely 'human' in her portrayal. Adele d'Aronzo supports the singer very well on the piano." -


Bonitatibus’s interpretations go to the heart of these extraordinary pieces. Collaborative pianist Adele D’Aronzo, meanwhile, presents some demanding accompaniments to impressive effect , while as a soloist she makes something special out of Mel Bonis’s brilliantly effective dance for piano, Salomé.
