Notes & Reviews:

An intense debut by Norway's new opera diva! Soprano Eli Kristin Hanssveen's spectacular voice has been the catalyst for a steadily rising career, and she is known for her unique charisma and acting talent. With Sempre libera, her first solo recording as an opera singer, Eli Kristin wishes to communicate something of the same intensity and spontaneity that the audience experiences during a performance. The program introduces listeners to a number of strong female characters through a varied and discriminating selection of arias from some of music history's most exciting operas.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The voice has some cream in it and a nice glow, and it also seems to have more weight than the average canarybird coloratura. I found this a pleasing, promising recital and would like very much to hear the soprano in a complete opera. This is a laudable musical achievement.
