Song recital Pretty Yende

When Pretty Yende sang Elvira in Bellinis I puritani a year and a half ago, she tore the Zurich audience to acclamations, and the Tages-Anzeiger also enthused: "Yende is indeed the ideal Elvira, with her voice and charisma, her condition and creative cleverness. After a good three hours, her top notes sound as effortless and fresh as they were in the beginning, she always finds the balance between clarity and mystery in her melodies and coloratura." Now the young South African returns with a song recital to Zurich and has more Belcanto in her luggage: Together with the pianist Michele D'Elia she interprets the songs and arias of Vincenzo Bellini and Gaetano Donizetti. With other songs by Claude Debussy, Franz Liszt et al. the singer is also to be discovered from a completely different side.
