Description

In these uncertain times, when changes seem so profound and unsettling, Marina Rebeka presents us with a selection of some of the most elevating music ever written to comfort and soothe the human spirit. Sacred music pieces by Mozart, Verdi, Stradella, Fauré, Durante, Handel, Bach, and more, performed with the delicacy of Sinfonietta Riga and the Latvian Radio Choir, conducted by Modestas Pitrenas. This is music to listen to while reflecting on our own fragility, and understanding what is really important to us in life.

Critical Acclaim for Credo

"[Rebeka] offers a rich, spacious sound in Mozart's 'Laudate Dominum' and carefully gradated tone in Verdi's Ave MariaThe 'Pie Jesu' from Faure's Requiem is luminously voicedThere's a moving ethereality to the soprano solo from the Brahms Requiem." BBC Music Magazine

"Only a true champion could afford such a disc in 2020, and since Marina Rebeka, as I have written so many times on these pages, is unquestionably so, the result is splendid." Rivista Musica, Italy. 5 Stars Recording

"Thanks, first of all, to a voice sufficiently fleshy and celestial to give each of these pages a vibration, an intensity, which immediately transcends them. Marina Rebeka proves to us, with consummate talent, that we can always believe in Heaven, especially when it is adorned with such beautiful music." Opéra Magazine, France

"Her wonderful soprano has a warmth of expression that is good for every single piece." Opernglas, Germany

"Albinoni / Giazotto's Adagio in G minor is a long vocalization that goes up to the top, transporting the listener into a celestial dimension that dissolves into nothingness with a formidable pianissimo finale. Rebeka once again demonstrates full technical control, including very long, well-sustained breath and dominance of vibrato and dynamics over the entire range." Connessi all'Opera, Italy

Critical Acclaim for Elle (PRIMA004):

"She [Marina Rebeka] brings a formidable dramatic attack, reminiscent of Callas or Régine Crespin, to Massenet's Salomé and Chimène (in Le Cid), and sensual lyricism to his Thaïs." The Sunday Times, United Kingdom

"close your eyes and listen to Marina Rebeka's gorgeous voice, and you might just find yourself transported away from the confines of your home for an hour of scintillating French music." Paris Update France

"A wonderfully silky and clean sound recording flatters a voice of irresistible charm, as well as a very "fin de siècle" interpretation, but without anything languid or evanescent. And then, what a high pitched piano on "Ah! je suis heureuse", one of the most miraculous of the discography!" - Opéra Magazine, France

"This is an exceptional recital of sumptuous late 19th century French opera." Music Web International, United Kingdom. "Recommended Recording" Distinction
