Contemplative, dramatic, spirited, lively – and all these facets united by absolute beauty and perfection: This describes the Baroque Evening in Salzburg’s Haus für Mozart. Sonya Yoncheva dedicated her recital to 17th- and 18th-Century music, together with Argentinian conductor Leonardo García Alarcón and his Cappella Mediterranea, all renowned specialists in baroque music.
