An atypical formation with very interesting sounds and colors for an absolutely new proposal. The accurate choice of music (chamber songs of great composers of the ‘800, first ‘900 Italians and great Argentine musicians of the ‘900) encourages an interesting and innovative dialogue between two very close realities that have had in common two main characteristics: the Italian Belcanto as a school and the phenomenon of Italian immigration as a link.Ivanna Speranza, a multifaceted and versatile Argentine singer, moved when very young to Italy on being admitted to the Academy by Arrigo Pola and Mirella Freni.

Her attitude to singing is at once passionate and practical, a thrilling mixture of optimism, single-minded determination and a steadfast commitment to making the best of her considerable talent. Ivanna Speranza embodies a new image of operatic singing, far from the dusty stereotype of the highbrow entertainment for refined elites, bringing back opera’s original essence and intent: the fervent expression of human passions. Just like the heroines that she plays on stage, Ivanna had to overcome hardships and obstacles in pursuit of her dream. Several times protagonist in operas of the great tradition and winner of numerous international singing competitions in prestigious theaters such as the Teatro Comunale in Florence and the Teatro Massimo in Palermo, Ivanna presents her third solo album, including a tribute to her compatriot, Astor Piazzolla, on the centenary of his birth.
