Karita Mattila

 

continued

One can only imagine what Mattila's Duparc, Rachmaninoff, and Dvorak will be like. Duparc's chansons are filled with an exquisite ennui and decadent sensuality. Rachmaninoff's songs are suffused with melancholy despair and sexual longing. Dvorak's Gypsy Songs are strong and healthy, with robust tunes and joyous lyrics. Given Mattila's recent performance, one might guess that she'll be in the mood for Duparc and Rachmaninoff. What she'll do with Dvorak is anybody's guess. But we can assume she'll do it wearing all her clothes.    (end of article)
