On 28th, 30th April and 1st May Sarah Wegener was part of concerts of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony of a Thousand in Elbphilharmonie Hamburg as Soprano I.
Due to illness, Kent Nagano had to cancel. Eliahu Inbal overtook the thing with two rehearsals. I do hope that Maetro Nagano is feeling better again.
Sarah is so happy and proud that her debut of Mahler 8th has been so successful. Critics wrote that they had had goosebumps all over the place, and that her voice was floating beautifully through the hall. (SZ)
Hamburger Abendblatt wrote that Sarah’s voice thrilled completely and touched with beautiful, pure, powerful and intensive singing.
Online magazine IOCO mentioned the highly pleasant soprano voice of Sarah which was described with soft, beautifully floating and warm of timbre.
Here comes a personal note from Sarah:
For me it has been an unforgettable experience full of powerful, celestial, fulfilling music.
May I thank everybody:
Maestro Inbal, Staatsorchester Hamburg, Staatsoper Hamburg, Opera Choir Hamburg, State Choir Latvia, Alterspatzen, Rosalie, Daniela Sindram, Heather Engebretson, Dorottya Láng, Burkhard Fritz, Kartal Karagedik, Wilhelm Schwinghammer, and especially my dear and grandiose soprano colleague Jacqueline Wagner for the felt 247 high c’s which we sung together!!
It was such a joy to make music with you all!
Apropos: I am a fan of the hall!
