About

In these uncertain times, when changes seem so profound and unsettling, Marina Rebeka presents us with a selection of some of the most elevating music ever written to comfort and soothe the human spirit. Sacred music pieces by Mozart, Verdi, Stradella, Fauré, Durante, Handel, Bach, and more, performed with the delicacy of Sinfonietta Riga and the Latvian Radio Choir, conducted by Modestas Pitrenas. This is music to listen to while reflecting on our own fragility and understanding what is really important to us in life.

Critical acclaim for Elle (PRIMA004):

“She [Marina Rebeka] brings a formidable dramatic attack, reminiscent of Callas or Régine Crespin, to Massenet's Salomé and Chimène (in Le Cid), and sensual lyricism to his Thaïs.” – The Sunday Times, United Kingdom

“…close your eyes and listen to Marina Rebeka's gorgeous voice, and you might just find yourself transported away from the confines of your home for an hour of scintillating French music.” – Paris Update, France

"A wonderfully silky and clean sound recording flatters a voice of irresistible charm, as well as a very ‘fin de siècle’ interpretation, but without anything languid or evanescent. And then, what a high pitched piano on ‘Ah! je suis heureuse’, one of the most miraculous of the discography!” – Opéra Magazine, France

“This is an exceptional recital of sumptuous late 19th century French opera.” – Music Web International “Recommended Recording”

Reviews

[Rebeka] offers a rich, spacious sound in Mozart’s ‘Laudate Dominum’ and carefully gradated tone in Verdi’s Ave Maria…The ‘Pie Jesu’ from Faure’s Requiem is luminously voiced… There’s a moving ethereality to the soprano solo from the Brahms Requiem, a performance also notable for a finecontribution (as elsewhere on the disc) from the Latvian Radio Choir.
