Welcome to the online performance home of soprano Sherezade Panthaki!
Soprano Sherezade Panthaki's international success has been fueled by superbly honed musicianship; “shimmering sensitivity” (Cleveland Plain Dealer); a “radiant” voice (The Washington Post); and passionately informed interpretations, “mining deep emotion from the subtle shaping of the lines” (The New York Times). An acknowledged star in the early-music field, Ms. Panthaki has developed ongoing collaborations with many of the world’s leading interpreters including Nicholas McGegan, Simon Carrington, John Scott, Mark Morris, and Masaaki Suzuki, with whom she made her 2013 New York Philharmonic debut in a program of Bach and Mendelssohn.
