"AN OBViOUS PRESENCE"

"Uzun [...] has an already obvious presence. One always pays attention to her. Hearing her, her alto voice is almost a phenomenon, concise, clear and of a volume that you don't associate with such a slim body.”

IN REVIEW

press + features

"From the Young Artist Soloists Deniz Uzun peaks out as the housekeeper Florence. Not only did she fascinate with her voluminous, free sounding, velvet mezzo-soprano, but also did she make us laugh with her portrayal of the extremely morally strict, obedient to her mistress, but actually quite cunning and concentrated on her own interests and pleasure."
