That’s the voice!
The 26-year-old Soprano from Ukraine won in 2016 the 1. Prize and the Audience Award at the 32nd International Singing Competition Neustadt an der Weinstraße and the RheinVokal Festival "Nacht des Belcanto" in Bad Neuenahr.
The press also wrote enthusiastically on the young artist’s performance:
‚In her mid-twenties she has already more presence and sensitivity than many a colleague after several years. A unique voice, text dramatic expression between hope and self-deception, combined with a profound technique, which perfectly handles the coloraturas in ‚Sempre libera‘– and utmost secure, clear and genuine high notes. What a delightful, well qualified talent. “
ClausAmbrosius, Kulturchef Bad Neuenahr
As they say: the best comes for last. Never was the final decision in the history of the Neustadt Mastercourse so evident. It took only a few notes of Violetta‘s Bravoura-Aria from Verdi’s opera ‚La Traviata‘ to persuade the jury and the audience: that’s the Voice.
The artist displayed a coloratura firework. Best of all, this year’s winner: Maryna Zubko. With „E strano“ from Giuseppe Verdi’s opera „La Traviata“ the Ukraine soprano born in 1990 as Violetta showed all registers of vocal art.
