Sinful Women / Dagmar Peckova
Dagmar Peckov‡; Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus; Aleksandar Markovic; Ivana Veberov‡; Peter Mikul‡s
The provocative title of the new album by the fêted mezzo-soprano Dagmar Pecková reflects a remarkable dramaturgic idea: that which connects the life of modern humans with the heroines of Antique mythology is the principle of sin – and forgiveness. This is perhaps why all the featured characters are smart and strong women, some of them even endowed with supernatural abilities. As rendered by Ms. Pecková and the Slovak Philharmonic under the baton of Aleksandar Marković, each of these “sinful women” is profoundly treated in psychological and emotional terms.
