Notes & Reviews:

Greek soprano Elena Kelessidi is one of opera's most touching and fiery artists. Here she makes her recital debut with this heartfelt program of songs from a country whose language is natural to her. Born in Kazakhstan of Greek parentage, Kelessidi sprang to International attention in 1996 when she made a highly auspicious stage debut at Londons Royal Opera House and was hailed as an important new discovery by the British musical press. Elena's accompanist is the ever-superb Malcolm Martineau. He appears in Susan Graham's recital, releases from Amanda Roocroft and Barbara Bonney and a forthcoming recital from the outstanding Austrian bass-baritone Florian Boesch.
