s03e05 The case of Emma Kirkby

Klára Kolonits

Our attentive followers may still remember my youthful determination to become an incarnation of Jessye Norman’s regardless of my entirely different physique and vocal endownments. At the same time, I idolised yet another singer whose vocal and physical qualities represented the other extreme. Emma Kirkby, the queen of baroque singing, was extremely popular in Hungary. A few years ago I had the opportunity to hear her in a concert live. It became clear to me that narrow specialisation has its dangers and benefits just as “omnivorous”, a chameleon-like career I already talked about on my own example. In this video I would like share with you my thoughts about this experience.
