Reqiuem  G. Verdi (Sopran) 

".....Maria Bengtsson
.....She floated her ‘sed’ in the
‘offertorio’deliciously, with peaches and cream tone of great beauty.  She had no issues riding the ensemble in the big moments and her climactic high C in the ‘libera me’ was wonderfully open and free, capping the textures magnificently.  That treacherous pianissimo high B-flat was perfectly placed..".

Royal Opera House, London Conductor: 
Sir John Eliot Gardiner
Stage: Sir David McVicar

,,...As Countess Almaviva the Swedish soprano Maria Bengtsson ....was terrific.

It was exquisite.... She won the audience over with her sense of perplexed injury, and she looked gorgeous...."
