Juan Diego Flórez is one of the world's best-known and best opera-interpreters. He made his debut in 1996 at the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro. At that time, he not only impressed the professional world. Luciano Pavarotti is said to have described him as a worthy heir to the throne. Flórez is a regular guest at all the world's most renowned opera houses. With his family, he lives mostly in Vienna, in 2012 he was appointed Austrian Kammersänger. However, contact with his homeland remains defied world career. In 2011, Flórez founded the social project "Sinfonía por el Perú". He supports disadvantaged children and adolescents by inspiring them to music.
In 2018, Flórez dedicates his own album to his homeland: "Bésame mucho". In the Wiener Konzerthaus, the star tenor, together with his band, gives South American hits a special touch. He skillfully mixes opera and popular music again and again. No wonder, because in his native Peru the borders between the different musical genres are far less rigid than in this country. From tango to waltz to pathetic declarations of love, Flórez sings as usual with the utmost precision and a seductive velvety timbre.
