The young russian soprano Julia Lezhneva, one of the most talented of her generation, has delighted with her voice in the three concerts (26, 27 and 28th January) she has performed at the National Music Auditorium in Madrid with the Spanish National Orchestra (ONE), conducted by Santtu-Matias Rouvali and accompanied by pianist Mikhail Antonenko. These performances have been presented in the ‘OCNE Symphonic Cycle’ and entitled ‘From Russia with the voice’. The repertoire has included pieces by Vivaldi, Händel, Mozart and Sibelius.
Lezhneva has fascinated to the audience with her performances of Vivaldi (‘Agitata da due venti’), Händel (‘Solitudini amate… Aure fonti’, ‘Brilla nell’alma’) and Mozart (‘Ch’io mi scordi di te?… Non temer, amato bene’) accompanied by ONE and Rouvali, as well as by Antonenko in the last piece of the programme before the break. Later, conductor and orchestra have moved the spectators with the ‘Symphony No.2 in D major, opus 43’ by Sibelius.
