Ileana Cotrubas was probably one of the most expressive performing stars of her period. She specific in operatic tasks phoning for a amount of pathos, such as for example Violetta, Ilia in Idomeneo, Mimì, Gilda, and Mélisande, but she also got something special for comedy which was well indicated in roles such as for example Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro, Norina in Don Pasquale, or Adina in L’elisir d’Amore. She kept strong values about staging, and more often than once triggered controversy by strolling from a creation which she thought was unacceptable for the opera involved. Her tone of voice and vocal creation, too, were relatively questionable: while her admirers praised it for the undefinable quality of “morbidezza” as well as for an nearly childlike shade of vulnerability, others discovered it saccharine. Some listeners, as well, discovered her audible deep breathing to become distracting. As the most her career is at opera, she also sang sacred music, especially Mozart, and offered the casual lieder recital. Her family members was a musical one, and she started her own performing profession when she became a member of the Children’s Chorus of Radio Romania at age nine, and by age 11 she got graduated to single parts. Her family members shifted to Bucharest in 1952, and she enrolled in the Scoala Speciala de Musica, a musical teaching academy for kids. In 1958, she continuing her studies in the Ciprian Porumbescu Conservatory. In 1964, she produced her operatic debut in the Bucharest Opera as Yniold in Pelléas et Mélisande, a job sung either by way of a son soprano or a grown-up lyric soprano, and continuing there, performing lyric and coloratura assignments such as for example Gilda in Rigoletto, Oscar in El ballo in maschera, Blonde within the Abduction in the Seraglio, and also Siebel in Faust. In 1965, she gained the first award on the International Performing Competition in Hertogenbosch, Holland, accompanied by very similar success on the 1966 Radio Competition in Munich. She produced her debut in Britain on the Glyndebourne Celebration in 1969, performing Mélisande, and her Covent Backyard debut in 1970 as Tatyana in Eugene Onegin. Throughout her profession, she preserved close ties with both Celebration and Covent Backyard, and maintained a property in Kent, Britain. In 1970, she agreed upon a nonexclusive three-year contract using the Vienna Condition Opera, performing there and in addition producing her U.S. debut on the Lyric Opera of Chicago as Mimì. In 1975, she produced her La Scala debut on incredibly brief notice, changing an sick Mirella Freni as Mimì (a job that is a calling credit card for both sopranos), and in 1977, produced her Met debut within the same function. In 1981, she was called a Kammersangerin with the Austrian federal government. In 1989, she announced her pension, and concentrated her energies on teaching. Her best-known pupil is normally Angela Gheorghiu, her Romanian compatriot. In comic opera, her Adina in L’elisir d’Amore is great (Sony M2K 79210), and she also produced a pleasant and coming in contact with Violetta in La traviata (Deutsche Grammophon 35417). She also produced an excellent recital Compact disc on Sony (SMK 60783), which features her both in her primary repertoire plus some roles she hardly ever sang on stage.
