Where is My Beloved?
One of the leading sopranos of her generation, Ekaterina Siurina enjoys an international career that takes her to the top opera houses in Europe and America. She made her professional debut as Gilda in Rigoletto, singing opposite the world-renowned baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Commenting on her recent performance as Violetta in La bohème, Parterre Box called her singing “deeply touching, with arching beams of tone.”
Siurina’s thrilling renditions of famous arias on this recording bring new life to operatic favorites such as “Un bel di, vedremo” from Madama Butterfly, “In quelle trine morbide” from Manon Lescaut and “Tatiana’s Letter Scene” from Eugene Onegin.
One critic, describing Siurina’s singing on her first album for Delos, Amour éternel, declared that she “impresses with an accomplished performance, by turns assertive, vulnerable, passionate, sensitive, and tormented,”
Siurina is accompanied by “the singer’s dream collaborator,” four-time GRAMMY® nominated conductor Constantine Orbelian, and the Kaunas City Symphony Orchestra. Orbelian and the Kaunas ensemble were recently presented the Golden Disc Award for high artistic level and intensive concert activity.
