Reviews

'' Marigona Qerkezi, dueña de un instrumento poderoso, con una facilidad inusitada en el registro superior, donde la voz suena rotunda y generosa''...'' Es una cantante muy llamativa que sin duda puede dar que hablar. ''
Jordi Maddaleno
Opera Actual
"In quest’ambiente agiscono i personaggi e i rispettivi interpreti: Marigona Qerkezi è una Rosalinde dal notevolissimo bagaglio tecnico, nonostante la giovane età, e una vocalità piena in tutti i registri: doti che sa pienamente dimostrare nel So muss allein ich bleiben, nell’Uhrenduett e in Klänge der Heimat, cantata dondolandosi all’altalena, nostalgicamente tornando col pensiero ad una Ungheria di maniera, mentre sul fondo scorrono le immagini del Danubio"
Luigi Paolillo
Fermata Spettacolo
