Berlioz Nuits d’éte with the Ulster Orchestra, January 2010

“How often do you hear a really satisfying account of all six songs? Rarely, it must be said. The songs make such severe, and different, demands that a single singer, even the finest, is hard put to master all of them. It can happen. In January I was in Belfast, where the cycle was sung by Elizabeth Watts… she gave one of the best performances I have ever heard… [she] had a strong vocal grasp of each song and an understanding of them remarkable in one so young.”
