Romance is in the air with love and laughter in Nicolai’s lavish Overture to The Merry Wives of Windsor,poetic bliss in Fauré’s Pavane and four glorious arias from rising soprano Aoife Gibney, winner of the 2016 RDS Music Bursary. There’s unabashed flirtation in Weber’s ‘Kommt ein schlanker Bursch gegangen’ (Der Freischütz), swooning devotion in Mozart’s ‘Deh vieni non tardar’ (The Marriage of Figaro), ravishing coloratura in ‘Je veux vivre’ (Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette) and sultry Spanish-accented passion in Delibes’ Les filles de Cadix. Ibert’s infectious Hommage à Mozart proves wit and affection can go hand in hand.
