“The greatest pleasure lies in the singing of the minor character, Arbate, stylish and sweet in the voice of the Icelandic mezzo soprano Sigridur Osk Kristjansdottir.” (Arbate in Mozart´s Mitridate)

Musical Pointers

“The jewel at the centre of the afternoon was a fine performance of Haydn’s Arianna a Naxos, sung from memory by the Icelandic mezzo soprano Sigridur Osk Kristjansdottir … This was as good a performance as I have heard, temperamentally mature, yet softened by a youthful voice.”

Serena Fenwick (

Financial Times

“Sigrídur Ósk Kristjánsdóttir’s mezzo is more metallic in timbre, with a bell-like resonance … she settled to deliver a ravishing account of Haydn’s “Arianna a Naxos” cantata, charting Ariadne’s descent into madness with taste and sensitivity.”

Laura Battle

Víðsjá at Channel 1, Iceland

“The highlight of the concert was Chansons Madécasses by Ravel. Sigridur Osk´s performance was fabulous. She is a very fine singer and I am expecting a lot from her, this is a name you should remember.” (Sigríður Ósk with Elektra Ensemble)
