New Recording on Delos Music

October 14, 2016

Her voice has a brilliance and a lightness that don’t prevent it from descending to darker nether regions or swelling to near-operatic fortes. She genuinely engages with what she is singing, and there is a hint of a laugh in her voice that lifts the music with an infectious lilt.
 

New York Times

With a voice as pure and limpid as spring water, Bayrakdarian makes an irresistible case for Viardot Garcia’s beguilingly melodic songs.

Time Out New York

Bayrakdarian is a singer who can unfold a text with great musical artistry.”

 

Edmonton Journal

She sings luxuriantly and passionately, with a richly pulsing mezzo quality in her lower and middle registers and a ringing fullness on top. She also responds with unforced, idiomatic vocal colorings to the demands of the texts and melodies. Her range — dynamic, timbral and dramatic — is impressive at every turn, as is her command of the six languages represented here.
