Quotes from the press about Elena
Syssojeva lets her voice shine...
From the first tone she took the intent, the style and the character.
Elena: Theater Woman of Purest Water
As soon as the first tunes sound it is clear: Elena Syssojeva is a dark brown soprano .... voice of very high quality
Elena has a voice like a clock, great volume, great technique ... and the most amazing sound
... very special timbre ..... when you hear Elena sing Bach, you think of the great Passions. Although she sings a lot of opera, a career as an oratorio singer would suit her well.
.... a brilliant voice
Elena performed the aria from the opera Norma in such a way that the public got a lot of goose bumps and chills.
.... Syssojeva, the pure Russia, the deep emotion .....
The audience compares her voice quality in opera with Maria Callas, in Russian music with Zara Doluchanova, and also that Elena herself has a special own style in singing art.
