"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

"A pleasant surprise, like Rubia, the Turkish-German mezzo-soprano Deniz
Uzun, with a beautiful vocal quality, warm and enveloping, well-produced and
well-projected, precise phrasing and diction, emotionally charged and vibrant
accents, and an elegant stage presence."
