cyndia sieden - soprano - reviews
Mozart & Haydn with New World Symphony
...the highlight of the concert was Sieden's performances of vocal works by Mozart.
The fresh, youthful quality of Sieden's voice perfectly matched the music of Mozart's early Exsultate Jubilate. She sang the quick melodic lines with a tightly focused voice, effortless virtuosity and joyous buoyancy... In No, no che non sei capace, she gave a performance of fiery virtuosity in the passionate, rapid-fire coloratura.

Cyndia Sieden was dazzling here, singing with uncanny focus, impressive stamina and ethereal beauty... Sieden was a wonder

The indispensable Cyndia Sieden again demonstrated that the stratospheric writing of Ariel's part may need rethinking when she retires.

The Tempest on EMI Classics
Cyndia Sieden is phenomenal as a stratospherically high coloratura soprano Ariel
The Financial Times, June 2009
...it's hard to think of another singer who could manage the stratospheric writing for Ariel more effortlessly than Cyndia Sieden.
The Guardian, 19 June 2009
For many, the most memorable writing in The Tempest comes attached to Ariel's vocal high-wire act. Few coloratura sopranos are able to dispatch it like Cyndia Sieden, whose sound lends special colour to the performance...
