Beauty Awake: Georgia Burashko
In this program, Canadian mezzo-soprano Georgia Burashko sings about life's major themes: childhood, love, heartache and eternity. Her diverse anthology ranges from English-language songs from the Elizabethan Renaissance to the High Baroque and much later. Works by Karmit Fadael and Dolly Parton are also featured. An ensemble of two gambas and a lute accompany her on this journey through four centuries of beauty in the Muziekgebouw.
The jury wrote about Georgia Burashko's program: 'She has put together a beautiful and fascinating program with a good sense of drama.' That sense of drama serves her well. Georgia has since sung several opera roles and was discovered by Les Arts Florissants. In the 2023-2024 season, she will go on a world tour with this ensemble with Purcell's The Fairy Queen.

Talent alone is not enough to reach the final of Dutch Classical Talent. Participants must bring distinctive and stimulating programs, vision and a bit of courage. The Final of Dutch Classical Talent is on Sunday, 12 May, in TivoliVredenburg Utrecht.
