Egyptian soprano Fatma Said’s debut album, ‘El Nour’, has been nominated for the BBC Music Magazine Awards 2021’s Vocal Award.
Fatma Said’s performance on her debut album, ‘El Nour’, has been nominated for the Vocal Award at the BBC Music Magazine Awards 2021. According to the BBC, “The Egyptian soprano dazzles with this debut, not just as a performer but as an innovator. Her enrapturing programme crosses borders, taking the listener from Ravel and Berlioz to Abdel-Rahim and Sayed Darwish.”
Two other albums are going up against Said in the same category: ‘Mahler’ by mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly, and ‘Chanson d’Amour’ which features the works of various artists.
Said previously won the Veronica Dunne International Singing Competition, the International Schumann Lied Contest, the Grand Award at the Giulio Perotti International Opera Contest, and the Leyla Gencer Voice Competition.
