“When she opened her mouth, it sent chills up and down the spine. Podleś doesn’t have one singing voice. She has three. One is a resonant growl from the chest. There’s a broad mid-range that’s either molasses-mellow or knife-sharp. And, like the cherry on a sundae, she’s has a huge, ringing head voice that towers over the orchestra. The Polish singer could set our hearts aflame with simple vocalises.”
