Julia Lezhneva will perform in Madrid on 26, 27 and 28 January
The young russian soprano Julia Lezhneva, one of the most talented of her generation, returns to Spain in January 2018 to perform three concerts at the National Music Auditorium in Madrid on 26, 27 and 28 with the Spanish National Orchestra (ONE), conducted by Santtu-Matias Rouvali. These performances are presented in the ‘OCNE Symphonic Cycle’ and entitled ‘From Russia with the voice’. The repertoire includes pieces by Vivaldi, Händel, Mozart and Sibelius.
Lezhneva will return to the same stage where she achieved a great success in February 2017 accompanied by La Voce Strumentale and Dmitry Sinkovsky. Also, she amazed last year with her debut at Gran Teatre del Liceu (Barcelona) performing Mozart’s opera ‘Don Giovanni’ and impressed the audience at Castell de Peralada Festival, where Lezhneva made her first recital.
She has become one of the main highlights of the decade in classical music, owner of a voice that shows an “angelic beauty” (The New York Times) and brings an “unforgettable spiritual expression and perfect artistry” (The Guardian). Lezhneva has released her last album ‘Graun: Opera Arias’ (Decca Classics) on April 2017.
