Soprano Corinne Winters wraps a 9-city European tour of the iconic Verdi Requiem with the Monteverdi Choir and Orchestras tonight, in a final performance at Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw.
The tour has enjoyed critical acclaim throughout its run, with Winters earning praise for her interpretation of the soprano solo in this operatic mass for the dead.
“Winters was spell-bindingly regal… Winters’ soaring soprano was persistent but beautiful, rising to her second high C without a flicker.”
“The soprano had a very flexible voice, flawless, with an interesting timbre, well placed piano and forte singing that carried over the wave of the orchestra. Winters is currently one of the most famous Traviatas on the operatic stage and it was easy to hear why.”
“A stunning performance.”
“Winters has the graceful timbre of silk, and she moved as one with the Swedish mezzo-soprano Ann Hallenberg. The quartet is therefore optimal for synergy, as you hear in the Agnus Dei: warm, vocally united, faithful to the score.”
“An exquisite line-up of soloists… The radiant passages for soprano and alto soloists, stunningly sung by Winters and Hallenberg, formed a highlight for the Agnus Dei…”
Adventures in Music
“Winters ascends the heights with gold-colored tones that resonate softly in the piano. How she structures the end of “Libera me” is breathtaking.”
“Winters, a slight but striking figure, excelled. She is an exquisitely expressive singer.”
