Grammy Award winning American soprano Christine Brewer’s appearances in opera, concert and recital are marked with her own unique timbre - warm and brilliant - combined with a vibrant personality and emotional honesty reminiscent of the great sopranos of the past. Her range, golden tone, boundless power, and control make her a favourite of the stage as well as a sought-after recording artist.
Brewer has appeared with many of the world’s great conductors and has performed her broad repertoire regularly with the world’s leading orchestras. A stunning recitalist, in addition to her many appearances at Wigmore Hall in London, she has graced Lincoln Center’s "Art of the Song" series and she recently sang for TRH The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall on their tour of the United States.
"This is singing of rare charm and versatility, at both ends of a vast emotional spectrum"
"Christine Brewer is one of the most appealing singers of our time, but she has the misfortune to be only rarely recorded. Voices as warm, large and glamorous as hers are never common, and all the time hers seems to be getting larger and more glamorous without losing its warmth ... If there is something outsize about the whole thing – with Roger Vignoles gamely turning himself into a miniature orchestra – it is exuberant and heart-warming, and a disc to be cherished"
"She’s in magnificent voice, and spellbinding, as always"
“With Brewer’s opulent voice soaring in chromatic ecstasy, Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder felt more than ever like slivers from Tristan und Isolde, reduced only in size, never impact.”
