Tarita Botsman is a soprano with a powerful and pleasant voice and perfect diction in Italian, French and English. Her timbre is almost mezzo-like in quality. Emotive in Donizetti’s “Piu non sfavilla il giorno”, light and cheerful in the famous “Me voglio fa na casa” by the same author, Tarita is at ease in all the registers of the classical repertoire. Featuring excerpts from their latest album Tarita and Glenn also offered “The Four Indian Love Lyrics”, four beautiful pieces composed in the early 20th century by Amy Woodforne-Finden. These four pieces allowed us to appreciate the extent of the range of Tarita and all facets of her talent as an interpreter with a special mention for the very beautiful “Kashmiri Song,” particularly moving. Glenn Amer, her musical partner of many years, was perfect in his role alongside Tarita. He also gave us a majestic Warsaw Concerto at the end of the concert. The audience enjoyed an exceptional musical evening with these fine Australian artists we will not quickly forget.
Tarita has the most developed personal discipline I have ever encountered. Her ability to work quickly and process information is remarkable. She is ethical in all her dealings with singers, musicians and theatre managers; honest and completely reliable. Her greatest strength, in my opinion amongst her many talents, is her creativity, and this can be seen in her ability to create, produce and direct shows.
