Critical Acclaim for "Notte di Tempesta" CD Concert tour

28.11.2016

"Virtuoso opening – "Da Tempesta" from Giulio Cesarea. Claire Meghnagi possesses a beautiful, crystal clear powerful voice, and delightful contemporary baroque style: beautiful ornaments and vibrato control exactly as required… beautiful, gorgeous sound. I especially loved the two arias sequence:  First lyric - "Wil the sun forget to streak" from Solomon, and immediately after the virtuoso coloratura aria "Che non puo la Gelosia" from Aci, Galatea e Polifemo. The last piece was another virtuoso aria from Rinaldo that floated in Meghnagi's voice in spectacular ease and lightness. The audience demanded an anchor, and received Gershwin's Summertime.  Claire Meghnagi sang with much gleam and grace, and Barrocade's period instruments polished playing, full of rhythm and energy, showed how beautifully music crosses the limits of time."

"Magnificent… Claire Meghnagi is a colourful Cleopatra, a mixture of classical beauty and Noomi Rapace. Her vocal performance was by turns wild and lyrically lovely as required."
