Notes & Reviews:

Transfiguration' is acclaimed star soprano Camilla Nylund's much-awaited first album of arias. This CD portrays the lyric dramatic soprano with famous arias and scenes from operas by Richard Strauss and Richard Wagner, including the grueling final scenes from 'Tristan und Isolde' and from 'Salome'. The featured arias reflect the lyrical and dramatic facets of Camilla Nylund's current roles at such venues as Staatsoper Dresden, Vienna State Opera, and Bayreuther Festspiele. The Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra is led by their chief conductor Hannu Lintu.

American Record Guide
The Tampere Philharmonic sounds impressive...

Gramophone
Their Tristan "VerklSrung" - as we should call it, like the title of this disc - is careful and reverent, and they seem undecided as to how much joy and grief to allow TannhSuser's Elisabeth or sad grandeur to allow Ariadne on her island. Interpretatively more definite, if rather straight-faced, is Daphne's wishing to be a tree. There's much skill in this recital - and that extends to playing and recording - but only the Lohengrin and Salome scenes emerge as fully coloured portraits.

Classic FM
When it's firing on all cylinders - as in the 20-minute chunck of Salome - this disc is thrilling indeed.

BBC Music Magazine
Nylund is temperamentally suited to this kind of thing - Isolde's so-called Liebestod is the disc's big success...yet she manages the conversational tone of [the Arabella scene] well, and her long address to the tree in Daphne is attractive too.

Classic FM Magazine
Camilla Nylund's soprano isn't classically 'Finnish' - it doesn't have that thick translucence, agility and piercing top-end focus - but it does boast considerable strength and a remarkable consistency of tone across its range...the voice's edge and power reveal the nihilistic desperation of both [Isolde and Salome], and the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra finds extra reserves of warmth, shape and snarl beneath her.

International Record Review
An intelligent musician, she is also exceptionally attractive and a fearless actress...the voice is youthful, solid, flexible and at ease in negotiating the high tessitura.

Gramophone Magazine
The Finnish soprano's cool 'in-between' soprano - big lyric but definitely not hochdramatisch - speaks well in the numbers that do not require outright personal emotions. She evokes an affecting degree of dreamy distance in Elsa's account of her mysterious saviour...Lintu (like Pappano) and Ondine's recordists give us an extraordinary amount of detail.
