Stunning reviews for Lisa Larsson

In May 2017 Swedish soprano Lisa Larsson gave the Finnish premiere of Martinsson's "Orchestral Songs on Poems by Emily Dickinson" in collaboration with Oulu Symphony Orchestra under the baton of chief conductor Johannes Gustavsson. The audience replied to her brilliant performance with greatest acclaim and she received stunning reviews in the Kalevala newspaper:

"() Orchestral Songs on Poems by Emily Dickinson by the Swede Rolf Martinsson are dazzling () Lisa Larsson brought the kaleidoscope-like views on display in a charming way: sparkling light, nature, quiet sorrow and crystal-clear chinks high above. Her singing and performing were both totally captivating. The voice and the words floated naturally and unforced. Brilliant twists and turns were amusing and beautiful melodies charming. A little bit of traditional lied, a hint of Bernstein and Britten, a pinch of Nordic sound world - tasty (delicious) and new () Larsson was subtly dramatic and created delicate nuances. Her voice that rose to bright pitches with astonishing easiness brought even the smallest details to the fore. A truly fine interpretation ()"
