Two young Russian artists and frequent collaborators—the stunning soprano Julia Lezhneva and the accomplished maestro Mikhail Shekhtman—join forces for a concert of glittering virtuosity and heartwarming lyricism. With the celebrated Russian National Orchestra at their sides, together they present an exciting program with Lezhneva’s brilliant soprano voice at its center: operatic jewels and sacred gems by Mendelssohn, Rossini, Schubert, Vivaldi, Handel and Mozart are complemented by symphonic masterworks by Beethoven, Rossini and Tchaikovsky.
“...Lezhneva certainly has a phenomenal gift, a voice that ranges evenly over the most intricate coloratura, with never a blemish or sign of aspirating. It is a serene, sleek voice, beatific in timbre, with a bell-like resonance that carries well. Technically it is flawless.” — Andrew Clark (Financial Times)
