Karita Mattila soprano
February 8, 2013
Finland native Karita Mattila is one of today's most exciting lyric dramatic sopranos, recognized for the beauty and versatility of her voice and the power and passion of her performances.
“Mattila's voice has a seductive, mellow maturity to it, all round edges, velvet undertones and ultra creamy legato. It has the earthy warmth of a mezzo but an upper register that still soars. Most striking was her ability to shape endlessly long lines: the breath control was stunning.”
