Christianne Stotijn performs once again with Amsterdam Sinfonietta. Her extraordinary talent and particular penchant for the song genre resulted in her receiving the 2010 BBC Vocal Award for a cd recording featuring Russian songs. BBC Music Magazine wrote: ‘Stotijn's charisma and her beautifully recorded altoish depth of tone is enough to hold me spellbound.’ She will join Amsterdam Sinfonietta in a performance of Mussorgsky’s macabre song cycle in a version for chamber orchestra by Theo Verbey. The cycle is dominated by the terrifying poems, in which devouring death assumes four different forms. Debussy, a great admirer of Mussorgsky, evokes a completely different world with his Préludes. In these imaginative and delicate works he portrays tendrils of mist, veils and an ancient cathedral at the bottom of the sea.
