Julia Lezhneva soprano

The murmuring excitement surrounding Russian soprano Julia Lezhneva reached a crescendo last year as she was hailed as a successor to her compatriot Anna Netrebko and promptly signed to recording giant Decca. Here Lezhneva brings her astounding agility, her rock-solid technique and her trademark lightness and power to Italian arias by Handel, works in which the composer’s love for the linguistic and emotional feeling of Italian texts is as palpable as it is stunning. Lezhneva is joined by Giovanni Antonini and his specialist ensemble Il Giardino Armonico for a solo debut at the Barbican which should not be missed.
