Núria Rial[1] (born 1975 in Manresa, Catalonia, Spain) is a Spanish soprano. In recent years, Rial has specialized in the music of the renaissance and baroque eras, such as the works of Handel and Monteverdi. Her repertoire also includes Johann Sebastian Bach, Mozart opera roles, and German, French, Catalan and Castillian art songs.


She began her musical studies in 1995 at the Barcelona Conservatory, finishing with a diploma in both voice and piano. From 1998 to 2002, she was a member of the Konzertklasse of Kurt Widmer at the Music Academy of Basel, where she received a diploma as a soloist.



In 2009, Rial won the ECHO Klassik Award, Germany's major classical award, in the category Young Female Artist of the Year.[2] In 2012 she won the award for the Opera Recording of the Year, arias by Georg Philipp Telemann accompanied by the Kammerorchester Basel.[3]
