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 all in the exact right amount… 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 pieace was another virtuoso aria from Rinaldo that floated in Meghnagi's performance 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."

Claire Meghnagi is a colorful Cleopatra, a mixture of antique beauty and Naomi Rapace. Her vocal contribution is both lyrical beauty and wild when it was needed. For her big aria V'adoro Pupille she was hung 7 meters in the air...
