Karita Mattila, soprano
Martin Katz, piano
With her “spellbinding mix of blazing fervor and ethereal beauty” (New York Times), Finnish lyric dramatic soprano Karita Mattila is a legend in her prime. Witness the “Eva Perón of the recital hall” (Financial Times) place Alice Tully Hall under her spell in this intimate recital of selected art songs.
“Karita Mattila is an artist who confounds expectations…She has a voice that is most often described in terms reserved for varieties of light—radiant, luminous, incandescent, shining. The same adjectives apply to the lady herself, whose artistry and integrity literally seem to brighten whatever she sings.”
“Seductive, mellow maturity…all round edges, velvet undertones and ultra-creamy legato.”
