Mária Bátori 2016

2nd December 2016, Bartók Rádió – Új Zenei Újság, László Ferenc

“The Erkel soprano of our times, Klára Kolonits, was shining in the murderously difficult part, and her interpretation cited Erzsébet Szilágyi’s bravura singing, tragical colours of Melinda and even lights of Mária Gara’s part. And let us underline, that this brilliant achievement took place 6 and 2 days after Verdi’s Requiem.”

“We found a great joy in the memorable singers’ productions. There is no better time to put this piece in the repertoire, than today when the title role has such a perfect interpreter! Klára Kolonits again presented her vocal versatility and spiritually rich character-building, her crystal clear voice is able to sound with dramatic power as well, and meanwhile the coloraturas run with impossible virtuosity. However, the role requires one more important feature, and this was fulfilled as well: Mária Bátori was a firm, strong, charismatic woman, who can easily put even the king in an uncomfortable situation.”
