“Thursday’s Prom by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales (Prom 39), efficiently conducted by Elim Chan, was a showcase for a rising star: the Scottish mezzo Catriona Morison. First she sang the most ardent performance of Elgar’s Sea Pictures I’ve heard since Janet Baker, then she was the soloist in Errollyn Wallen’s This Frame is Part of the Painting, inspired by Howard Hodgkin’s paintings and sharing their explosively colourful multiplicity.”

Richard Morrison: “Prom 39: BBC NOW” in: The Times, 19. August 2019 - Sea Pictures, BBC Proms, Elim Chan, 2019

“Die Rückert-Lieder gestaltete sie zuvor tief ausgelotet, hochemotional, traumhaft schön, herzergreifend… Ihr Auftritt war mit Abstand das Highlight der Matinee.”

“Stimmlich bleiben keine Wünsche offen. Morisons Mezzo folgt organisch den musikalischen Stimmungsumbrüchen, von dunkler Qual in strahlende Ekstase.”

Wiebke Rohloff Halsey: „Massenet: Werther (Charlotte), Bergen Nasjonale Opera, 2019“ in: Opernwelt, Mai 2019

“…who could fail to be moved by Morison’s opening set of Brahms’ lieder which, like all her performances, bore a tantalisingly slow-burning quality, even an enticing coyness communicated as much through her flashing eyes as her pitch-perfect voice.”
