verdi: requiem

“Klára Kolonits was terrific last year as well; back then I felt mainly the spirituality in her singing, this year it was her overwhelming serenity and passion for life that was striking for me, as well as her gestures and her relationship with the other singers, that made me see them as an ensemble.”

“Klára Kolonits delivered a collosal artistic experience. Tamás Vásáry found in her everything what he might need to put in his interpretation, a soprano able to fulfill each musical and vocal expectation of the conductor and the composer.
Kolonits such as Vásáry approached the piece from the spritual side, they saw in it not the most wonderful opera of Verdi, but really a mass, a sacred piece. Therefore from the first up to the last sound she was singing with a fantastic empathy, even transifiguration, even for a second she did not leave the atmosphere of the piece; was living in it, breathing its air, soundlessly singing even there, where there is no note for her in the score. Technically reached the highest level of all soprano soloists I’ve ever heard, equally perfect in the aetherical pianos as in striking fortes. (…) Out of her artistry one must name at least crystal clear tone and legato of Recordare, unusual inspiration in Agnus Dei and difficult high B flat a cappella in Libera me which was a never-heard secure, beautiful and full of light piano. Who once heard the following, neverending high C on the background of impressive chorus tableau, will most surely never forget it. Magical soprano of Klára Kolonits is a treasure and miracle of Hungarian music and I hope I will be able to listen to it many, many times. ”

“There are singers, such as Klára Kolonits, who from the beginning until the end are visibly inspired, regardless if singing or not in the given moment, lives with the piece just as the conductor. Libera me was very genuine, we could really pray and hope together with the singer.”

“Klára Kolonits’ beautifully ethereal solo in Offertorium proved, that it would be a pity to stay home. (…) Libera me was as powerful and inspired as the whole piece, and in its final moment the soaring vocalise of Kolonits crowned in a proper way the beautiful production.”

reviews

“Klára Kolonits sang the soprano solo with her usual professionalism, pliant and ethereal – but in the same time giving a distinct character to her part.”

“Two concert arias and Constanze’s aria from Entführung were exquisite. Kolonits sang with perfect technique and put all her heart into them.”
