This new release pays tribute to Finnish superstar Karita Mattila on the occasion of her 50th birthday in September 2010.

This DVD features a recital performance which Karita Mattila gave to a compatriot audience at the Finnish National Opera in Helsinki, in October 2006. International critics praised the recorded sell-out concerts: “Karita Mattila at her glorious peak… No wonder the Helsinki audience went berserk.” The Daily Telegraph

This is the much-awaited first-ever release of Helsinki Recital on DVD; it includes previously unreleased encore material. The original sound recording of Helsinki Recital, released as hybrid SACD in June 2007 garnered the highest accolades throughout the international press, including BBC Music Magazine ‘Song Choice’ and Gramophone ‘Editor’s Choice’.

This product includes a free bonus CD compilation featuring Karita Mattila and pianist Ilmo Ranta with German and Finnish standard repertoire Lied songs.

International Record Review

November 2010

“the Mattila of 2006, fearlessly engaged and with a collaborator rather than an accompanist in the diminutive Martin Katz, is quite simply a phenomenon”

BBC Music Magazine

Christmas 2010

*****

“a thrilling crescendo of the performance art of one of the greatest living sopranos...She feasts on every language she takes on; and her fearless barefoot physicality in Dvorak's Gypsy Songs anticipates an encore in which she all but lap-dances...In summary, then, this is a real treasure trove of delights!”
