Each performance by soprano Yulia Lezhneva is an event for lovers of early music and opera. Her concerts are always sold out. The press admires “the voice of” angelic purity “flying into the stratosphere” and “impeccable technology.”
“How is it even possible to sing trills and arpeggios at such a dizzying speed, without losing the naturalness inherent in everyday speech? It seems that while performing the most complex, virtuoso music, this voice does not even approach the limit of its capabilities.”
Julia Lezhneva sings on major stages of the world with the best orchestras and early music ensembles under the baton of Mark Minkowski, John Eliot Gardiner, Anthony Pappano, Roger Norrington and others.
