Britten

War Requiem

Boston Symphony Orchestra

"The Russian soprano Tatiana Pavlovskaya has become in recent years an established figure in the international opera world. Her mastery of the major Russian operatic heroines is secure. The classic dramatic soprano roles of European opera are also in her repertoire...The voice is big, very big. Not until the Lacrimosa section of the Dies irae did she win me over. Her pianissimo there was golden, touched with velvet and deeply in touch with both Britten and Verdi (whom Britten references here and in a number of other places in the Requiem). At that point I was converted. The fire we heard earlier, and later, was put in context. And I must say that her Latin pronunciation is worlds better than Vishnevskaya’s..." Donald Teeters, Classical-scene.com, 8 November 2013
"Soprano Tatiana Pavlovskaya, whose steely entrances in the “Liber scriptus” and opening of the “Sanctus” were balanced with the dulcet fervency of her account of the “Lacrimosa.” Jonathan Blumhofer, The Arts Fuse, 11 November 2013

Rusalka - Foreign Princess

Glyndebourne Festival Opera

"Tatiana Pavlovskaya is strikingly glamorous in the short but horribly testing part of the Foreign Princess."
