Elizabeth Atherton “lustrous and dramatic” in Britten
Elizabeth Atherton appears on Malcolm Martineau’s second volume of Britten Songs for Onyx Classics singing On this Island.
Describing her “wonderful rapport” with the audience, Richard Morrison in The Times says Atherton “caught exactly the subtle moods – bittersweet, ironic or heartfelt”. Writing in the Daily Telegraph, Rupert Christiansen says her performance is a “musically alert and intelligent interpretation”. The Sunday Times describes it as “lustrous and dramatic” and The Guardian as “superb”.
Elizabeth Atherton returns to the studio in 2012 to record Handel’s Saul with Harry Christophers and The Sixteen, following performances with him at the Barbican and Buxton Festival.
