She sang eight arias ranging from Bach’s Coffee Cantata, Handel’s Rinaldo and Vivaldi’s motet “In furore” through Purcell, Mozart and Caldar to a scene from Pergolesi’s opera “La serva padrona”. This was the centerpiece of the concert. Not only as a very large and complex singing performance, but also as a comic performance. The soloist found inspiration and courage to play a really relaxed scene.
Lucie Kaňková endowed the baroque and classicist arias with crystal timbre, moving technique and positive energy, which almost gushes from her. She has more than enough talent and natural musicality and it is a pleasure to listen to her.
