“Unfailingly beautiful” - Mhairi Lawson impresses in Haydn Creation recording

1 January 2009

Mhairi Lawson has attracted wonderful reviews for her recent recording of Haydn’s Creation with Edward Higginbottom on Oxford Philomusica Records (OP 008-9). George Hall writes in BBC Music Magazine that she is “a major asset: Mhairi Lawson has a beautiful voice and excellent artistry”, and later in the same article that she “proves as unfailingly beautiful in tone as she is neat in execution.”

Mhairi Lawson is well-known on stage and recordings for her vivid vocal depictions, and this new release is no exception - Emma Baker (Classic FM Magazine) praises her “sweet, expressive soprano” and her characterisation in the second part of this masterpiece, where she is “full of wonder as Eve.”
