Recensioner

Om Siv Wennberg: Richard Wagner Tristan & Isolde (WYASTONE) - A Great Primadonna Volume 2:
The performance in Linköping and Stockholm in October 1988 gave rise to splendid reviews in the press, Svenska Dagbladet headlined "Siv Wennberg radiant Isolde" and the critic Carl-Gunnar Åhlén wrote "Her name is far from unknown, but all the same the event can be regarded as a second debut, and in addition a world sensation, the soprano Siv Wennberg on Wednesday evening in Linköping Concert Hall." (...)
Other newspapers like Expressen and Dagens Nyheter described how she impressed with her complete command in the more dramatic parts and beautiful in its higher register. The Stockholm concert was recorded and is now at last issued on disc, 26 years later .

”Tristan och Isolde” från 1988, med Norrköpings symfoniorkester, en imponerande prestation som gav henne Svenska Dagbladets operapris (SvD).

STOR FRAMGÅNG AV IRENE THÉORIN SOM BRÜNHILDE I BARCELONAS RAGNARÖK



RECENSIONER:

Amongst the performers that took part at the Götterdämmerung premiere at the Liceu the great highlight was the immense, anthological and unforgettable Brünnhilde by Iréne Theorin. Voice, power, dramatic engagement and understanding of the character put the Swedish soprano in a place to be considered one of the best Brünnhilde in the world, if not the best. Her final scene will remain in the memory of all for many years to come.
