Karl Jenkins: The Healer  –  Carnegie Hall

I am going to single out two movements that were my favorites, the hauntingly beautiful The Dove, with Lucy Knight’s exquisite heart-melting voice.

Massenet:  Werther  (Sophie)  –  Grimeborn Festival

Lucy Knight’s Sophie clearly has a huge crush on him, and her singing was fresh and forthright, not girlishly twee.
— Opera Magazine, Yehuda Shapiro, November 2014 – Massenet: Werther, Grimeborn Festival

Lucy Knight sang prettily as Sophie.

— The Telegraph, Rupert Christiansen, 23rd August 2014 – Massenet: Werther, Grimeborn Festival ★★★

Lucy Knight is a charming little sister Sophie and her light, airy interventions are sweetly sung.
— The Evening Standard, Kieron Quirke, 20th August 2014 – Massenet: Werther, Grimeborn Festival ★★★

As Sophie, Lucy Knight is charming, singing with a delicate lightness which judges the acoustic perfectly, her performance full of “little girl” detailing (twisting her hands in her skirt, hiding her face in people’s arms) which is adorably cute. If anything, I would have liked to see a little more emotional progression in Sophie, who does grow up slightly during this opera, but Knight’s performance was consistent, brilliantly acted and well executed.
— Bachtrack, Charlotte Valori, 22nd August 2014 – Massenet: Werther, Grimeborn Festival ★★★★

Lucy Knight’s Sophie was a brilliantly sung, bubbly contrast to her elder sister.
— Classical Source, Peter Reed, 19th August 2014 – Massenet: Werther, Grimeborn Festival

Lucy Knight made a delightful Sophie, giving the character a certain wide-eyed wonder and youthful attitude which worked well and her act 2 solo was full of the right amount of charm and lyric beauty. There was a degree of extra by-play in the action which seemed to be suggesting that Sophie was in love with Werther too.

Penrith Music Society  –  Evening Song Recital (Soprano Soloist)

This was an outstanding recital by two young artists of whom much should be heard in the future. Lucy and James are to be commended not only for the quality of their performance but also in the imaginative and successful concept of their programme. A recital to remember.

Debussy:  Pelléas et Mélisande  (Yniold)  –  Grimeborn Festival

There was exquisite singing and acting from Lucy Roberts as Yniold
— Opera Magazine, Yehuda Shapiro, November 2013 – Debussy: Pelléas et Mélisande, Grimeborn Festival

The Grimeborn Festival continues in Hackney, last week offering a model of sensitive direction in Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande, with a… sweetly vulnerable Yniold from Lucy Roberts.

Sibelius:  Kuolema  (Soprano Soloist)  –  King’s Place / ECO

It was given a beautifully pitched performance by the ECO under Paul Watkins and the impressive young soloists Lucy Roberts (soprano) and Johnny Herford (baritone), and I was amazed to learn that the performance was this country’s first. Composed to illustrate a play of sublime gloominess by his brother-in-law Arvid Järnefeld, the music is exquisitely haunting. I hope to hear it, and the soloists, again soon.

‘Elsa’s Song’… was graced by the plaintive contribution of Lucy Roberts.
