‘Fierce’ is word that aptly describes soprano Simone Kermes presently appearing in Fearless Baroque with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra. She sings with a rare physicality discarding convention in her delivery of her dazzling technique, unconventional sounds and the quantums of energy she pours into her performances.
In this video she sings the aria Son qual nave from Idaspe by Broschi (not the aria of the same name from Zenobia in Palmira by Leo, which she sings in Sydney).
Check out also the review of her Sydney concert by Peter McCallum in the Sydney Morning Herald.
There are two more performances in Sydney, on Wednesday 11th and Friday 13th September at 7 pm at the City Recital Hall, Sydney.
