Larisa Martínez is excited to announce her upcoming debut album release, "Saudades: Songs of Love and Longing." More information coming soon!
Ms. Martinez and violinist Joshua Bell present a new concert program, Voice and the Violin, an evening of beloved romantic arias and modern classics.
Larisa Martínez makes her Carnegie Hall/Stern Auditorium debut with Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection” on the same stage where Mahler himself conducted his final concert.
"As Musetta, Larisa Martinez is delightful, embodying every nuance of that infamously charismatic character. Her aria, the famous and dazzling “Quando m’en vo’” is enchanting, her voice moving from that of a young flirtatious girl to that of a sultry, experienced woman in one effortless breath.”
“Her voice is naturally full-bodied and grounded in mezzo qualities. Her warmth and middle-voice precision is captivating. Her voice can interpret a wide range of repertoire without sounding like it fits into a particular box. She makes a path of her own by means of nuanced agility and flexibility."
"Martínez’s crystalline high notes and her nuanced dynamic changes, plus her classic beauty and total dominion of the stage, won the audience which included a full house of the island’s most informed opera mavens, performers, teachers and other cognoscenti."
“From her first notes, soprano Larisa Martinez' plush, dolcet sound soared to heavens, shimmering above the chorus. Her exquisitely warm, dark, timbre added a hymn-like quality to the return of the "O, Schmertz!" motif and her duet with Karanas just prior to the return of the mighty chorus, was ravishing.”
