... And the musical captivation did not end there. The quality of Morgana’s “Credete al mio dolore” – really a vocal/instrumental duo – was heartbreaking, not only because of Mirella Hagen’s effortless vocal lilt, but to the Baroque sound and impeccable phrasing of her orchestral counterpart. ... Mirella Hagen's arias as Morgana were absolutely brilliant – her "Tornami a vagheggiar" was a gift of effortless cascading coloratura ...

Mädchenherzen newest review at FANFARE by Ken Meltzer

 

"... From the very start of Strauss’s setting of “Hat gesagt, bleibt’s nicht dabei” from Des Knaben Wunderhorn, A Maiden’s Heart emerges as the work of two exceptional young artists. Mirella Hagen’s ravishing lyric soprano voice, elegant, crystal-clear diction, and sparkling personality create an impact that, in days past, might have been described as “leaping from the grooves” of the recording. It is very clear that Hagen has invested a tremendous amount of thought and preparation into her interpretations. Time and again, she varies her vocal weight and color, as well as declamation of the text, to communicate the song’s dramatic and musical essence. Hagen is also a master at using vibrato not just as an element of vocal production, but an expressive device as well. For the most part, she maintains a steady, even vibrato during the course of a word or phrase. But at other times, Hagen uses a “straight” mode of vocal projection. And occasionally, she combines the two, starting with a straight tone, then segueing to vibrato. Throughout the recital, when employing the latter technique, Hagen varies the proportion accorded to each method of production. The trick of course (and one mastered by all of the greatest Lieder singers) is to apply all of these techniques, but have the result sound natural and spontaneous, as if the artist were discovering the song for the very first time. And that is precisely what Mirella Hagen achieves in A Maiden’s Wish. Hagen’s exquisite combination of technical and interpretive mastery, lack of artifice, and captivating charm, is very much in the tradition of another German soprano whose recordings I’ve reviewed for Fanfare, Irmgard Seefried. Pianist Kerstin Mörk demonstrates a similarly impressive level of accomplishment. And it is very clear that these two artists view their artistic relationship not as one of singer and accompanist, but equal collaborators. ..."

 

 

American Record Guide

 

„... The theme oft he program, „young girs and their feelings“, sounded trite untill I considered the vast and rich amount of poetry and music written on the subject. The programming here is great; it makes sense musically, thematically, and historically.

The performances are also terrific; Hagen’s voice is siilvery, full, and clear and Mörk’s playing is rich and supportive. A great addition to your lieder library. ...“

 

 

Es ist soweit! Seit dem  8. 1. 2016 ist die CD Mädchenherzen auf den Markt!

 

"... ein exzellentes Liederalbum ... 

Kerstin Mörk ist eine herrlich mitgestaltende Begleiterin, lässt es nachtigallenhaft tril- lern und beziehungsreich blühen... 

...Mirella Hagen ist da eine ideale Interpretin."
