VOICE OF THE MUSICAL CRITICS

“Straordinaria interpretazione dal suono stabilmente impostato e timbrato adeguatamente al messaggio artistico di una profonda sensibilita intrisa di fede ed all’insegna di un autentico estetismo vocale camerale. Bravissima!”

(Dr. Stephan Poen – Roma, Italia)

“Cristina Iordachescu’s charming timbre and precision of intonation…”

(Iosif Sava – The Music)

“… a musician full of nobility and artistic refinement…”

(Doru Popovici – The Week)

“… a mezzosoprano with a rich, generous timbre, with particular quality, enveloping and expressive, whose interpretation is already standing out on the same coordinates that have marked her father’s entire musical evolution – distinction, sensibility, refinement, sustained by a solid musical culture. A good leading of the phrase, a good technique and a profound knowledge in the stylistic plan, traits confirmed in the bubbling mozartian duetto interpreted together with her father, the baritone Dan Iordachescu.”

(Anca Florea – The Week)

“In the recent artistic event from the Radio Hall, the mezzosoprano Cristina Iordachescu has impressed us profoundly! Between her refined musicality, which we have pointed out so may times, and the vocal technique, a consonance with multiple resonances has been created. We were simply amazed by the easiness with which she rendered the famous ‘Laudamus Te’ by Mozart, then the lieder ‘Ridente la calma’… In Schubert’s case, she proved a remarkable sense of the phrasing, and then, presenting us masterpieces of Enescu’s lyric, showed us that she knows how to render the confessional lyricism of that music, destined to resist time. In the second part of this wonderful evening of authentic music, Cristina Iordachescu has sung for us arias from the operas ‘Werther’ by Massenet, ‘Mignon’ by Ambroise Thomas, ‘La Favorita’ by Donizetti and ‘Don Carlos’ by Verdi. We emphasize, again, the easiness with which the mezzosoprano passes from a musical style to another, a fact that shows a solid musical culture. To all these, a polychromy of nuances is added, expression of an early talent…”

(Doru Popovici – The Music)

“Mezzosoprano Christina Iordachescu has a voice of superior quality – earthy in the lower register, divine in the middle and velvety in the high register. In Mozart’s ‘Voi che sapete’ she etched a most delightful melodic line, so transparent and elegant. ‘Mon coeur’ from ‘Samson et Dalila’ by Saint-Saens unfolded spontaneously with a haunting tenderness. In the short pieces of Schubert and Debussy, she capably projected the natural beauty of her voice, so unaffected and pure. The delivery of the entire repertoire, including five Philippino songs, had shown thoroughness. Indeed, not a rough edge could be felt. Her songs just unfolded, as clear as crystal, free of any vocal imperfection.”

(”The unaffected beauty of the mezzo” by Antonio C. Hila, The Manila Chronicle)

“Mezzosoprano Christina Iordachescu has shown a brilliant and penetrating mezzo voice, with a remarkable timbre.”

(Klaus Kessler – Neuer Weg)

“Christina Iordachescu, daughter of the great baritone Dan Iordachescu, fascinating in the mezzosoprano arias from ‘La Clemenza di Tito’ by Mozart and ‘La Favorita’ by Donizetti. Here she has shown an absolute operistic level.”

(Susanne Haase – General Anzeiger, Bonn)

“The voice of mezzosoprano Cristina Iordachescu has convinced through her sweetness, and in the low register through a very pleasant and resonant timbre, in the air of Cherubino and in the part, dedicated to love, of Dalila by Saint-Saens.”

(Winfried Kuhne – Bad Pyrmont)

“The elegiac debut of Romeo and Juliet by Berlioz, a kind of ‘once upon a time’, sustained by the choir and especially by the generous, elegant and confessive line of the mezzosoprano, impeccably interpreted by Cristina Iordachescu-Iordache, whose warm, qualitative voice, with a refined phrasing and led with intelligence, has been unanimously applauded and appreciated by the public in the Radio Hall…”

(Anca Florea – The Cultural Observer)

“Dans la Messe en re, op 40, de Dafydd Bullock, les deux voix de femme, nuancees, merveilleusement timbrees et complementaires, sont celles de deux soeurs, la soprano Irina Iordachescu et la mezzo-soprano Christina Iordachescu-Iordache. (…) La mezzo-soprano, aux merveilleuses teintes vocales, avait des sonorites de velours. (…) Dans la Requiem en re mineur K626 de Mozart, la basse riche et eloquente, le tenor au timbre pur, s’y joignaient a la soprano virtuose au phrase souple, a la mezzo-soprano aux resonances captivantes et profondes. Toutes les interventions des quatre solistes avaient une grace musicale empreinte de gravite. Elles touchaient aussi bien par leur engagement emotionnel puissant que par leur style parfaitement classique.”

(Hilda van Heel – Luxemburger Wort)
