Elizabeth Farnum
Press
         

“A honeyed tone that sailed gracefully”
           -Allan Kozinn, the New York Times

"...sung with characteristic warmth and confidence...."
          -Paul Griffiths, the New York Times

“Elizabeth Farnum negotiates the high tessitura with grace, 
bringing delicate shading of dynamics to her characteristic
pitch-perfect accuracy” -Christian Carey, CD Review "Elizabeth Farnum's attractive, agile soprano voice
...masters the composer's colossal challenges with relaxed authority." -Jed Distler, ClassicsToday "The extraordinary Elizabeth Farnum...revealed herself to be
a wonderfully expressive performer, with an impressive control
and a crystalline clarity of tone…” -Fred Volkmer, The Southampton Press "Elizabeth Farnum...is equal to the considerable challenge
of these songs which demand and receive both delicacy
and a tempestuous fulminant...the singing has about it
a dazzling confidence..." -Rob Barnett, MusicWeb Magazine (UK) "...sung with great dramatic flair
by ravishing Soprano Elizabeth Farnum...." -Joseph Pehrson, The New Music Connoisseur "Elizabeth Farnum navigated Boulez's intervallic leaps
with great agility and beautiful tone." -The New Music Connoisseur “Farnum’s superb musicality and clarity of diction
are absolutely exemplary in this performance.” -Lynn Rene Bayley, Fanfare Magazine "...a radiant voice and a sparkling personality to match." -Ron Emery, Albany Times "Soprano Elizabeth Farnum sings (Eric Moe's) Siren Songs
with brilliance and sensitivity…" -Andrew Druckenbrod, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Soprano Elizabeth Farnum displays an astonishing vocal range ...consistently clear, silvery, lyrical and focused tone quality" -Louise Causey Lewis, Hilton Head Island Packet “Soprano Elizabeth Farnum declaims most of it in Sprechstimme. Her music often veers high on the staff in imitation of the manner
in which aerialists and trapeze artists swing high above the circus audience.
She masters it easily and Corbett’s high notes hold no terrors for her.
Her vocal technique is so secure that she has
no difficulty starting a phrase on a high note.” -Maria Nockin, Fanfare
