Anu Komsi, Finland's 'coloratura assoluta', here presents a wide-ranging programme, from mad scenes and rage arias from 18th- and 19th-century operas, to Alyabyev's ever-soaring Nightingale and the silvery tinkling of Lakmé's Bell Song.

Komsi also performs later examples of coloratura, including Glière's glittering Concerto for coloratura and orchestra, and La Machine de l'être by the composer John Zorn - a work which she premiered in New York City in 2011.

The disc closes with a thoroughly idiomatic performance of Sibelius' Luonnotar, with its text from the Finnish national epos Kalevala. Throughout the programme, Anu Komsi is supported by the Lahti Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sakari Oramo.
