Quotes & Highlights

“A personal and artistic triumph. Ms. Voigt, who looked great, exuded confidence and won a tumultuous ovation. What matters, though, is that she sang thrillingly…I have never heard her sing with such fearless intensity.” —New York Times
“Her singing was gleaming and voluptuous, its power and warm, womanly vocal quality undiminished…Voigt poured out the grueling final scene in mad exultation of opulent, radiant tone.” —Chicago Tribune

Description

Deborah Voigt’s concert will include rarely heard art songs of Verdi, R. Strauss, and Respighi, and also will feature Mozart’s little known “Eine kleine deutsche Kantate,” written in the final year of his life, contemporary with “The Magic Flute” and the Requiem. In addition, Ms. Voigt will sing American lieder of Amy Beach and Leonard Bernstein.

Though audiences are familiar with this great dramatic soprano’s presence in the larger-than-life world of opera, hearing her voice in the simplicity of an intimate song recital promises to be a revelation.
