Notes and Editorial Reviews

Stella Grigorian’s Lied recital unites reminiscences of Spain originating from many different countries Stella Grigorian has been an ensemble member of the Frankfurt Opera since the 2006/2007 season. She began her career as a member of the Vienna State Opera ensemble; she has been in Frankfurt since 2006. Stella Grigorian has also appeared at the Hamburg State Opera, at the Zurich Opera House, at the Aalto-Theater in Essen and at the Salzburg Festival. The steep career of the Georgian-born singer at major opera theaters should not deceive listeners about her affinity for Lied. By all necessary exaggeration in operatic singing, a certain naturalness is one of the mezzo- soprano’s trademarks. Lied thus plays an important role in her work: Read more "When I sing Lieder, I must be capable of bringing across nuances in the smallest possible space – nuances that go directly to the listener‘s heart. This has a great effect on operatic singing, which lives from phrases with a long buildup of musical tension.“ Read less
