“A lovely, relaxed musical evening you will cherish.”
“Soirée” starring Magdalena Kozena and, among others, Sir Simon Rattle, has been reviewed on The Whole Note! Read a glimpse of the review below!
“How nice it is that a singer would take some time out of her crazy, busy life, sit down with friends and a few drinks and sing her favourite songs. And that’s exactly what by-now-world-famous-Czech mezzo, award-winning recitalist, recording artist and opera star, Magdalena Kožená, does here […] Naturally she is strongest in her native Czech and Moravian idiom. She sings with youthful freshness and confidence. Especially impressive and unique are the ‘Nursery’Rhymes’ by Janáček; some are outrageously funny. And I am happy she included one of my all-time favourite songs by Dvořák,’When my mother taught me’.”
