Latvian soprano Marina Rebeka uses her dark, steely sound instrumentally and accurately… [her] singing is impressive.
Marina Rebeka’s approach to Mozart’s great soprano arias is just ideal. She gives every phrase time and space to fulfil its emotional potential.
Strong, bright, evenly produced tone, a shapely sense of line and precise coloratura…In the two Queen of the Night arias she unleashes spitfire coloratura to bring the house down…Best of is her Elettra in Idomeneo, sung with an ideal baleful, impassioned grandeur…her debut recital announces a soprano of impressive vocal accomplishment and, at her best, dramatic flair.
Latvian soprano Marina Rebeka is making quite a name for herself…The voice is a full, lovely lyric soprano, without a break from top to bottom, with an unusual upper extension—she sings both Queen of the Night arias on this CD and has little trouble with the heights or the coloratura…definitely a soprano to pay attention to.
