Ruxandra Donose Wants to Sing Romanian Music

The mezzo-soprano discusses in an interview that she longs to sing more music in her native tongue. She discusses a recording she made of Nicolae Bretan songs set to the poetry of Eminescu, Coşbuc and Blaga. It was this folk music that made her realize how important it is for a singer to speak a language
that they are trying to communicate on stage in order to make a connection to the audience. She hopes to plan concerts of Romanian music in the future. For now she will have to be content with upcoming performances of Norma at El Festival de Ópera de Las Palmas de Gran Canarial, La Damnation de Faust in Amsterdam under the baton of Charles Dutoit, Das Lied von der Erde in Mexico City, Così fan tutte with L.A. Opera conducted by James Conlon and Offenbach's Grande Duchesse de Gerolstein in Geneva. [Source]
