San Jose’s Mercury News asked a poignant question about Jamie Barton: “Is there anything this artist can’t sing?” Judging by her meteoric rise to the top tier of mezzo-sopranos, the answer is a resounding “no.” She has dazzled audiences around the world in operas that span the bel canto of Bellini to Wagner and concert music from Brahms to Elgar. Musical Toronto wrote, “The moment she opened her mouth, my jaw (figuratively) dropped.” Be prepared for a similar experience when she comes to Carnegie Hall.

When soprano Dorothea Röschmann last appeared at Carnegie Hall, she sang the lead role in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas with heart-wrenching conviction. Less than two weeks later, she performed in recital alongside pianist Mitsuko Uchida with virtually unrivalled intimacy. She is a singer who can sail through the ornate coloratura of a Mozart aria and plumb the emotional depths of Schumann lieder, delighting with her “voluminous silken sound” (The New York Times).
