Editorial Reviews

Review

On a recording of French and Spanish music, Pérez displays a powerful, distinctive tone that is both deep and rosy. She can evoke the feeling of breathless spontaneity and then slip easily, magically up to a soft, exquisitely controlled high note. Two arias from Massenet s 'Manon' show a role to which she is well-suited. The lushness of her voice fits romantic songs by Reynaldo Hahn and the title set by Gabriel Fauré, which she sings sensitively. She also brings character, agility and rich colorings to songs by Joaquin Turina, Fernando Obradors and Manuel de Falla. Iain Burnside provides lively, proficient accompaniment throughout. --NJ.com, Ronni Reich

Product Description

A delightful program of French and Spanish song explores the theme of love found, enjoyed and lost, from the subtlety of Faure to the fiery passion of Turina, Obradors and de Falla. The gentle charm of Hahn and impassioned fervor of Massenet's Manon are equally captured by American soprano Ailyn P+ªrez, who has bewitched audiences on both sides of the Atlantic in opera and song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chocolate Rising September 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It is a pleasure to review this disc, Spanish and French songs dealing with various aspects of love. Let's begin with Ms. Perez's voice: Now of course I have not heard every single soprano who has ever walked onstage or recorded a CD, but this much is certain: Of the many I in fact have heard over many years of listening, her voice, her instrument, is unique. This uniqueness arises from her aural coloring, which is a mixture of darkness, smokiness, "chocolate" and richness. All other sopranos (again, of my experience) have timbres in the silver-to-white-to-cream range, from which Ms. Perez's timbre lies far afield. Frankly, how can one not love it? Call it amazing and wonderful. As to her technique: excellent in all respects: well-supported top-to-bottom, excellent breath control, pleasant vibrato, can sing high notes softly as well as loudly--and all with that aforementioned delicious timbre. But how about artistry, the key ingredient? Well, what do you know, she has it there too! Perez does great justice to the simple--and simply beautiful--songs of Reynaldo Hahn, and it is here, right from the top of this CD, where we can consummately assess her musicianship: no vocal fireworks here, so if she cannot communicate with the voice, then everything falls through. Perez absolutely delivers. Brava!

With that smoky quality of hers, for me the Spanish songs especially shine, as the two go so well together in my mind's eye (and ear). You seem to hear the "duende" in her soul. Her French songs are delivered with no less artistry, though I smile in some strange delight in listening to them because of the unusual timbre of her voice, a timbre I have never heard caressing French song heretofore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wondful Debut CD Recital NOT TO BE MISSED January 19, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ailyn Perez is certainly an artist to watch. As last year's winner of the Richard Tucker award the world got to see her on Live from Lincoln Center as so many have be lucky to hear her in the great opera houses of the world. If you've missed her so far here's your chance.
The voice is unique and immediately identifiable and beautiful. The artistry sure and illuminating.
What I love about her is her ability to make the moment her own so we are drawn in, without distorting or exaggerating, often heard songs and aria are new again.
So much to love here but my favorite is her performance of De Falla's Siete Canciones revealing a richness of voice and feeling putting her alongside Victoria de los Angeles and Conchita Supervia. Make no mistake though, the songs by Obradors, Hahn, Faure and Turina are equally lovely.
The arias seem oddly out of place on this recital and though wonderfully sung.
Not to be Missed!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Developing Superstar May 5, 2013

With a magical voice, Ailyn Perez is truly gifted. Having seen her light up the stage starring in three different operas, there are no limits for her. This collection was a must have, and I am not disappointed. An absolutely beautiful voice.
