Adonis | R. Keiser “Der geliebte Adonis” | Donaufestwochen
Maria Weiss, exquisite in the trouser role of Adonis, displayed her lush mezzo with so much expression to render her admirers Marelize Gerber (Dryante) and Anna Willerding (Eumene) quite jealous of Venus.
Maria Weiss endows the cool and vain rake Adonis with even and slender mezzo-soprano vocals.
Weiss’ secure coloratura technique makes you sit up and take notice.
Solo Debut Album “favola in musica. early new music”
But, above all, the mezzosoprano voice of Maria Weiss floats brightly and nimbly.
It almost seems as if the pieces were composed for her. (…)
“favola in musica. early new music” is the convincing debut album of Maria Weiss.
Great musicians, a good selection of works, brilliant recordings and a booklet like no other.
