**It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of tomorrow’s Lieder Concert owing to the ill-health of soprano Tatiana Lisnic. Patrons who have purchased tickets will be refunded accordingly. **
International soparano Tatiana Lisnic, known for her particular voice timbre and sensitivity of expression, was planned to perform well known Romantic classics at the Casino Maltese, on Saturday 23rd January at 8pm.
On the night, Lisnic was to be accompanied by the melodic notes of harpist Britt Arend to interpret artistic songs, known as lieder, in French, German and Russian.
Among the pieces planned to be performed during the one-hour concert were; Fauré’s “Après un Rêve”, and “Claire de Lune”, Liszt’s “Oh, Quand Je Dors”, Schumann’s “Der Nussbaum”, Schubert’s Standchen, Dvorak’s “My Mother Taught Me ” and Rachmaninoff’s “A Dream” and “How Fair this Spot”.
From as early as the 12th century AD, the German word lied is used to refer to a polyphony which brings together poetry and classical music. English speakers refer to it as ‘art song’, a genre which flourished in the Romantic era. Much like alchemy, the sum of the individual components results in a magical sound.
Tatiana Lisnic was born in Cobalea, Moldova. She received her diploma at the Music-Academy “G. Dima” in Cluj, Romania and continued her studies with Alida Ferrarini in Italy.
Tatiana Lisnic made 1998 her stage-debut at the Opera House in Cluj as Nedda (“Pagliacci”), followed by Ilia (“Idomeneo”).
Under the baton of famous conductors, Tatiana Lisnic appeared on the most important opera stages including, La Scala di Milano, Teatro La Fenice Venezia, L’Opéra National de Paris Bastille, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, the Deutsche Oper Berlin, the Japan Opera Foundation Tokyo, the Mikhailovsky Theatre in St. Petersburg and the San Diego Opera.
She also has a rich Europe-wide concert schedule and has recorded several works including a CD of the opera “Gianni Schicchi” in the role of Lauretta for Naxos with A. Rahbari and a DVD featuring a performance of “Le Nozze di Figaro” in which she performed the character Susanna for TDK with R. Muti.
