Today's Contralto Update features Venetian contralto Giovanna Dissera Bragadin.
Giovanna Dissera Bragadin, the Venetian contralto, has a warm, rich voice which suits well the religious works of the early composers. She has had success in the works of Monteverdi, Leo and Pergolesi, and has also performed in the modern-day world premier of J. G. Naumann's works. Bragadin is passionate about the work of Benedetto Marcello, and seeks to rediscover his unreleased music.
