Voices of OperaLarisa Martínez is proud to announce her collaboration with EASTWEST and her participation in a unique project - VOICES OF OPERA - a brand-new virtual instrument featuring the sensational vocals of her voice.
October 2019: Carnegie Hall debutLarisa Martínez makes her Carnegie Hall 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.”
“Larisa Martinez brought a smoky soprano to the key role of the poet Corinna. Martinez cut an elegant figure, the grace of her stage deportment matching that of her singing.”
''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.”
