Hila Plitmann

Soprano

  • Hila Plitmann...began on a note of ecstasy and never left it.
    Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
  • Hila Plitmann, Corigliano's chosen soprano, is a composer's dream. Throughout her enormous range, her singing is precise, expressive and lit with intelligence.
    Larry Fuchsberg, Minneapolis Star Tribune
  • One wonders if a soprano of the spectacular gifts of Hila Plitmann is available anywhere else.
    Bill Zakariasen, The Westsider
  • ... the powerful yet delicate voice of Hila Pilitmann filled the Barbican with an ethereal and strikingly beautiful sound.
    Kemal Yusuf, Bachtrack.com
  • Grammy award-winning soprano Hila Plitmann is a glittering jewel on the international music scene, known worldwide for her astonishing musicianship, versatile and beautiful voice, and the ability to perform challenging new works. The Los Angeles Times call her a performer with “tremendous vocal and physical grace”. Hila has worked with many leading conductors, including Leonard Slatkin, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Thomas Adès and Steven Sloane, appearing as head-liner with the New York Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the National Symphony Orchestra. Hila has accumulated an impressive catalogue of professional recordings, including The Da Vinci Code soundtrack (Decca) which received a Grammy nomination, and in 2009 Hila won a Grammy for ‘Best Classical Vocal Performance’ for John Corigliano’s song cycle Mr. Tambourine Man (Naxos) with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. Born and raised in Jerusalem, Hila received her Bachelor and Master of Music degrees with high honours from the Juilliard School of Music, and has been awarded the coveted Sony ES Prize for her outstanding contribution to vocal arts.

      Orchestra Hall, Minnesota (April 2014)

      Plitmann contributed a soaring lyric soprano.
      William Randall Beard, Star Tribune
      The performance of Five Hebrew Love Songs was ethereally beautiful and enhanced by having its lyric writer and original soloist (Plitmann, now Whitacre's wife) singing. Plitmann's featured role in Samuel Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915 was excellent.
      Basil Considine, Daily Planet
      The most impressive singing of the concert's first half coming from soprano Hila Plitmann on Samuel Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915.
      Rob Hubbard, Twin Cities
    • Dum Dee Tweedle (Del Tredici)
      Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Leonard Slatkin (November 2013)

      Hila Plitmann without a score, rose to the occasion with characterful contributions.

      Hila Plitmann sang with distinction.
      Mark Stryker, Detroit Free Press
    • John Bucchino and Friends
      St James’s Theatre Studio, London (June 2013)

      Hila Plitmann whose delicate, soprano rendition of ‘Sweet Dreams’; a song stylistically reminiscent of the early work on Joni Mitchell, was hauntingly & skillfully performed. Plitmann also sang ‘This Moment’ later in the show with equal skill.
      Leon Paul, thepublicreviews.com
      Hila Plitmann, who sang a beautiful version of one of Bucchino’s most famous numbers, ‘Sweet Dreams’. I have heard a number of artists perform this song, but the extra vulnerability her soprano voice brought to this rendition was incredibly moving.
      Fiona-Jane Weston, musicaltheatrereview.com
    • Life Story / The Tempest, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Thomas Adès
      Elisabeth Murdoch Hall (April 2013)

      Draped vampishly over a chair, soprano Hila Plitmann beautifully conveyed the vulnerability of its protagonist and the many contrasts of its text... Renowned for her vocal flexibility and interpretations of contemporary works, Plitmann was also outstanding in Knussen's 'Hums and Songs of Winnie the Pooh'.
      Martin Duffy, The Canberra Times
      The surprises and new music-style innovations came in the impossibly high and angular line for Hila Plitmann's Ariel, her contribution providing a study in brilliant technique harnessed to a near-incomprehensible text.
      Clive O’Connell, The Age
      This study in longing and depravity is beautifully executed by soprano Hila Plitmann, who is an experienced performer of musical theatre and film scores.
      Duncan Yardley, ABC Classic FM
      On the performance side, London-based Israeli soprano Hila Plitmann sizzled her way across the stage, her exuberant physical mannerisms pure cabaret and her voice remaining supple, mellow and pure while delivering a barrage of leaps, shifts and shrill effects.
      Eamonn Kelly, The Australian
