Debut of Julia Lezhneva with the Berliner Philharmoniker and Adam Fischer
Julia Lezhneva's debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker is a complete success. Read for yourself how enthusiastically the press writes about the concert:
The Tagesspiegel titled on 04.10.2019
"From heart, to heart."
"...also the singing scenes with which the young Russian singer Julia Lezhneva conquers the Philharmonie. She sings recitatives and arias written for soprano virtuosos with an unusually clear voice, low in vibrato, fine, unforced depth and decorated with trills. In Haydn's orchestral scene "Berenice, che fai" and Mozart's recitative and Rondo KV 505, tragedy texts become lust, because the torment of love and pain are dressed in shining tones, like the interpreter in alternately dazzling robes...". Read the whole review.
The Berliner Zeitung writes on October 8, 2019
"Close to absolute puritiy"
"Lezhneva, for the first time with the Philharmonic, only has to sing one phrase, and it is clear that she will be one of the great singers of the next 20 years: Such a powerful and never harsh voice, effortlessly capable of the piano in any register, close to absolute purity and yet blessed with individuality, enters the stage only once in ten years. ... How Lezhneva conveys these characters (Berenice que fai), how she depicts mental landscapes with melodies, is deeply impressive." Berliner Zeitung
