It's always the right time to meet up with the tremendously talented tenor Juan Diego Flórez—here in a scintillating recital with pianist Vincenzo Scalera at the 2022 Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad! Flórez begins his trilingual program, rich in color and emotion, with quintessential Lieder by Schubert and Richard Strauss before moving on to intimate Italian ariettas by Bellini—jewels of Romantic bel canto—and virtuosic opera arias by Rossini. The recital closes in grand style with the formidable aria "Seul sur la terre" ("Alone on the Earth") from a lesser known masterpiece by Donizetti, Dom Sébastien, Roi de Portugal.
