Jennifer Borghi

A musician praised for her “beautiful voice” and “intense interpretation” by Italy's La Repubblica, Jennifer Borghi has garnered accolades for performances of widely varying repertoire and styles in many of the world's premiere classical music venues. Since her 2009 debut in the role of the Composer in Strauss's Ariadne auf Naxos at the Greek National Opera, Miss Borghi has proven herself a stage, concert, and recording artist of remarkable versatility, performing to critical acclaim works of the French, German, and Italian Romantic and Classical traditions; contemporary music; and works of the French Baroque era. She has performed works of Arnold Schoenberg and Gustav Mahler at Vienna's Arnold Schoenberg Center, Lully at the Royal Opera of Versailles, and Mozart in Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral.
Since 2010 Miss Borghi has been engaged in the rediscovery and promotion of neglected works of the French Romantic period through collaboration with the Palazzetto Bru-Zane – Centre de Musique Romantique Française of Venice in operatic, recital, and recording projects. 
Miss Borghi's performances have been transmitted on Mezzo and Arte, Radio France, Südwest Rundfunk, and Radio Canada. She is featured on numerous world-premiere recordings including the title roles of the cantatas Frédégonde (1897) and Clarisse Harlowe (1895) by Max d'Ollone with the Brussels Philharmonic (H. Niquet, dir.) for Glossa's series The Music of the Prix de Rome (release early 2013), Théodore Dubois's Le Paradis Perdu (1878 – Les Solistes des Siècles/Les Cris de Paris, G. Jordan, dir. Aparté), J.B. Lully's Bellérophon (1689 – Les Talens Lyriques, C. Rousset, dir.; Aparté),  Rodolphe Kreutzer's La mort d'Abel (1825 – Les Agrémens, G. Van Waas, dir.; Glossa), Dauvergne's Hercule mourant (1761 – Les Talens Lyriques, C. Rousset, dir.; Aparté – release October 2012), Méhul's Adrien, Empereur des Romains (1800 – Orfeo Orchestra/Purcell Choir, G. Vashegyi, dir. – release late 2012), and J.C. Vogel's La Toison d'Or (1786 – Le Concert Spirituel, H. Niquet, dir. – release spring 2013).
Jennifer Borghi begins the 2012-2013 season with the inaugural concert of the Palazzetto Bru-Zane at the Scuola Grande di San Giovanni Evangelista in Venice, Italy. The program of arias from French operas of the late Classical and proto-Romantic periods is taken from her recently recorded debut solo album (to be released in early 2013) and accompanied by the Belgian orchestra Les Agrémens under the direction of Guy van Waas.
The season continues with renewed collaboration with orchestras such as Les Talens Lyriques (Renaud of Sacchini in concert and recorded for commercial release) under the direction of Christophe Rousset, the Brussels Philharmonic (studio recording of Joncière's Dimitri) under the direction of Hervé Niquet, and Les Agrémens (studio recording and concert performances of Gossec's Thésée - in the role of Medea) under the direction of Guy van Waas.
