I've heard her live a couple of times. Firstly, I think the size of the voice is exaggerated since there are so few large voices about nowadays. Yes, it's big, but it's not produced freely enough to rival Flagstad, Tebaldi, Ponselle, Milanov, Sutherland, Callas in their primes in terms of sheer volume. The voice lacks support in quieter music and is only really big at the top of, and above the stave. The middle, mainly the lower middle, and bottom, is fairly opaque and doesn't project half as well. Her vibrato is far from a wobble but it is a little too prominent for my liking. She has an occasional habit of starting notes straight and then adding vibrato which interrupts the musical line and she often shakes her jaw, a sign of unneeded tension. She is musically capable but I also can't imagine her having any remarkable depth of characterisation to make up for any vocal failings. I imagine she has her reputation as many have never, or not for many years, heard a large voice with an attractive, if not exceptionally beautiful timbre. If you're used to Netrebko, Stemme, Voigt etc. I'd urge you to hear her as you'd probably find much to enjoy but if you're someone who prefers Flagstad, Tebaldi, Callas, Muzio etc. I wouldn't say there's much of a chance she'd make the impression you are hoping for.Because people who have heard her live say she's amazing. Her recording of Fidelio is wonderful. Here aria CD is pretty good as is the Grieg CD. By all accounts it's an extraordinary voice.
