The star for me is the soprano Agnes Zsigovics — icily perfect in her grief in Zerfliesse...
Don't miss Agnes — among the best ever.
— David Stancliffe, Early Music Review, April 2012
I was particularly impressed by Zsigovics’ ringing and polished singing.
— Philip A. Metzger, The Morning Call, May 2014

“Radiant soprano” Agnes Zsigovics has recently been hailed for her “purity of sound and expressivity,” (The Register-Guard), her voice reviewed as “stylish” (The New York Times), “hauntingly beautiful, creamy, velvety, bell-like” (The Morning Call), and “among the best ever” (Early Music Review). A recording artist for Sony BMG, ATMA Classical, and Analekta, Agnes tours internationally, appearing with leading choirs and orchestras in the United States, South America, and Europe. She was a featured soloist at Carnegie Hall and performed the St. John Passion under Yannick Nézet-Séguin and with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra under Maestro Helmuth Rilling.
Agnes' most recent appearances include her debut at the Oregon Bach Festival performing the Monteverdi Vespers, performances of Bach’s Mass in B minor and Cantata BWV 106 at the Bethlehem Bach Festival, Handel’s Messiah with the Guelph Chamber Choir and with Nota Bene Baroque Players, Arvo Pärt’s Stabat Mater with the Art of Time Ensemble, and a recording of Schutz’s Musikalisches Exequiem for Analekta due for release in late 2014.
Upcoming engagements include The National Ballet of Canada (Pergolesi Stabat Mater choreographed by James Kudelka), The Grand Philharmonic Choir (Bach St. Matthew Passion), Theatre of Early Music (Purcell Dido and Aeneas), Les Idées heureuses (Bach Cantatas), and the Bethlehem Bach Festival.
Agnes appears on the Juno-nominated album The Voice of Bach with Daniel Taylor and the Prix OPUS-nominated classical disc of the year Bach Johannes-Passion with Les Voix Baroques and Arion Baroque Orchestra under Alexander Weimann. Agnes holds a master’s degree from the University of Toronto, where she is currently completing a doctorate of musical arts in voice performance.
