As she had said before the concert, Diana Haller, Rijeka mezzosoprano with the successful international career, achieved the most intimate encounter a musical artist can have with her audience, a special and intimate one. For the audience of her city she prepared a programme she had never performed before, consisting of different authors, styles and languages, but with a common denominator, Spain, be it most popular Spanish songs to those who in their solo songs were close to that country in spirit or by topic, from Manuel de Falla, Joaquin Turina, Federico Garcia Lorca, Fernando Obradors to Hugo Wolf, Xavier Motsalvatge and Carlos Guastavino, Gioachino Rossini and Maurice Ravel. Haller was accompanied by pianist Filip Fak, also from Rijeka, who with she had already performed recitals that were real artistic sensations. With her impressive voice, excellent art of interpretation, stage impressiveness and confidence, together with the brilliant pianist Diana Haller gave us an unforgettable concert evening imbued with various atmospheres and coloured with intensive emotions such as those that emerge from the depths of Spanish souls. This exceptional artist rendered the recital in a breath-taking and suggestive way. The audience did not hide their enthusiasm, first with applauses and shouting “bravo” during the concert, to entice two encores in the end by enthusiastic ovations; first a song by a composer from Rijeka, Ivan pl. Zajc, then an aria from Rossini’s Cenerentola, on which, as she said, she had built her career. Bravo!
