BIOGRAPHY


 

"And the way the last movement’s soprano soloist, Chen Reiss, appeared as if from nowhere, high at the rear, statuesque and golden, to convey the child’s view of heaven was the best solution to the finale’s logistical problem I’ve come across. The answer is, clearly, do it by sheer magic. And she sang the part beautifully, with purest tuning and, as Mahler required, without parody."

Soprano Chen Reiss has established a strongly-acclaimed and distinctive career, enchanting audiences with “one of the most perfect Strauss voices one could wish for” (Classical Source), “a voice of silver brightness and clarity” (Bachtrack) with “immaculately produced and enticing tone matched by superb musicianship” (Opera News, USA).

" Reiss’ brilliant performance for Cantata No. 51 was simply astonishing. Bach’s florid writing was a romp for her. Reiss sang with such appealing tone that joyousness was more important than her brilliant technique  -  and that’s making music. "
