Notes and Editorial Reviews

Few young singers merit the superlatives bestowed on them as much as Norwegian soprano Lise Davidsen, called a "powerhouse" by the Guardian. The award-winner has now released her second studio album, Beethoven Wagner Verdi, with Decca Classics. Recorded in London during the summer and autumn of 2020, Davidsen is accompanied by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Sir Mark Elder on a record offering listeners a new perspective on "one of the greatest vocal talents to have emerged in recent years, if not decades" (Gramophone).

 

REVIEWS:

 

Her voice reminds me now of Birgit Nilsson’s at the same stage, an Elsa and Sieglinde who is a Brünnhilde in waiting, with the same thrilling edge to her top register, though she isn’t lacking in her lower notes either. As the Ave Maria from Verdi’s Otello makes clear, she can also scale her voice down.

 

– BBC Music Magazine

 


Another fine album from an artist who, quite simply, is one of the greatest voices to be heard today.
