about deniz uzun
Supported from an early age, mezzo-soprano Deniz Uzun's first performances regularly took place both on the opera stage of the Nationaltheater Mannheim, and at concert events in Germany and abroad.

"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."

Equally at home in alternative genres of music, Deniz's artistic portfolio highlights a passion for world music, which has always accompanied her musical path, whether it is rearranging traditional Turkish folk songs or improvising on themes of Benjamin Britten.
