“This is actually a personal theatre, where there is no singing partner, no ostentatious decorations or costumes, and the singer only with his song and his soul creates such a complex world or fate within a couple of minutes, which otherwise, in the opera, gets constructed in two or three hours and on a thirty-foot stage. It requires the highest level of concentration from the artist, because if I let go just for a moment, I lose my connection with the audience and I loose all the magic awoken by the song. “

Klára Kolonits|Dates

reviews

“I found myself in an internal, homey world. The character of the pieces was transmitted very well and Klára Kolonits made us believe that technically this is a children’s play for her: listening to the colours of her voice and subtle pianos was an unforgettable experience. Some of Schubert pieces became practically folk songs in Austria: and both performers made them sound such naturally, purely and honestly as if they were popular music indeed. Dániel Dinyés was a perfect partner: he stayed in harmony with the singer and didn’t fall into second row. Klára Kolonits underlined the emotional expression of the music with subtle gestures as well.”

Schubert: Liederabend | 13th December 2015, kultifilter.hu

“Strikingly subtle instrumentation and exceptional timbre of Klára Kolonits’ beautiful voice deepened the uniqueness of the piece. She sang wonderfully; she understands, feels the modern music as well.”

Dinyés: Canti senza parole | 11th November 2010, Ildikó Lehotka

“Klára Kolonits sang with her usual suggestiveness, rich variety of musical assets and impeccable diction.”

Gyöngyösi: Two Csokonai songs | March 2009, Muzsika, János Malina
