International soprano Tatiana Lisnic, known for her particular voice timbre and sensitivity of expression, will be performing well-known Romantic classics at the Casino Maltese on Saturday, 23 January at 8pm. Tickets are available from

On the night, Lisnic will be accompanied by the melodic notes of harpist Britt Arend to interpret artistic songs, known as lieder, in French, German and Russian.

Among the pieces to be performed during the one-hour concert are Fauré's Après un Rêve and Claire de Lune, Chausson's Le Colibri, Liszt's Oh, Quand Je Dors, Schumann's Der Nussbaum, Strauss' Morgen and All Mein Gedanken, Dvorak's Als die Mutter and Tchaikovsky's Serenade. 


From as early as the 12th century AD, the German word lied is used to refer to a polyphony which brings together poetry and classical music. English speakers refer to it as "art song", a genre which flourished in the Romantic era. Much like alchemy, the sum of the individual components results in a magical sound.

Lisnic was born in Cobalea, Moldova. She received her diploma at the Music-Academy G. Dima in Cluj, Romania and continued her studies with Alida Ferrarini in Italy.

Lisnic made  her stage-debut in 1998at the Opera House in Cluj as Nedda (Pagliacci), followed by Ilia (Idomeneo).

Under the baton of famous conductors, Lisnic appeared on the most important opera stages including La Scala di Milano, Teatro La Fenice Venezia, L'Opéra National de Paris Bastille, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, the Deutsche Oper Berlin, the Japan Opera Foundation Tokyo, the Mikhailovsky Theatre in St Petersburg and the San Diego Opera.

She also has a rich Europe-wide concert schedule and has recorded several works including a CD of the opera Gianni Schicchi in the role of Lauretta for Naxos with A. Rahbari and a DVD featuring a performance of Le Nozze di Figaro in which she performed the character Susanna for TDK with R. Muti.
