Larisa Martinez

World-Renowned

Singers

Larisa Martinez has established a strong and unique presence in the classical performance world. Having performed with opera titan Andrea Bocelli as his principal soprano on a world tour, she also won the Metropolitan Opera National Council Audition PR district 2016, receiving the Angel Ramos Foundation Award and Audience Prize.She earned raved reviews as Musetta in Loft Opera’s critically acclaimed production of La Bohéme and for her other leading roles in Verdi’s Rigoletto, Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, Rossini’s Adina, Floyd’s Susannah, and Donizetti’s Don Pasquale and Lucia di Lammermoor.

Carlton Moe

Heralded by the New York Times as an "ardent tenor," Carlton Moe performed as Ubaldo Piangi in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera, the longest running show on Broadway. His opera credits include Lakmé (Gerald), I Capuletti e I Montecchi (Tebaldo), The Mother of Us All (John Adams), Ernest Bloch's Macbeth (Malcolm), and Roméo et Juliette (Tybalt), and he was a soloist in major works such as Verdi’s Requiem, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, Mozart’s Requiem, and Handel’s Messiah.

Opera House - Larisa

I have always loved opera", said co-producer Doug Rogers "at its best, it can send shivers down your spine. And that's what happened when I saw Andrea Bocelli and Larisa Martinez performing together at the Hollywood Bowl. Larisa agreed to work with us on Voices of Opera. The recording sessions were sensational. She has the voice of an angel, her pitch is perfect, her range and vocal power unsurpassed. Then the opportunity arose to add tenor Carlton Moe (Phantom of the Opera) to the project. He just has this incredibly rich tone. It was truly a labor of love.

Larisa Martinez

Pristine Recording
Techniques

Choose and create your own mix from multiple vintage mic positions including Front, Rear, and Room. The Front mic is a Telefunken 251, a famous vocal mic that captures incredible warmth and detail. For the duet phrases, a Neumann U67 was added to fully capture the sound of both singers. The Rear includes a pair of vintage Cole 4038s that add more depth and space. The Room mix includes a Decca tree made up of Neumann M50s and a pair of AKG C12 outriggers, replicating the mic set-up of a classical stage. All recordings were made at EastWest Studios, our world famous recording studios known for producing more Grammy nominations than any other studio in the world: 121 in the last 7 years.

Opera House - Chandaliers

The sound quality was never going to be in question with this title: this comes from EastWest after all, and they are the best in the business. There is nothing else quite like Voices of Opera on the market nor another developer brave enough to attempt it. A solid addition to the ‘Voices’ range making this category an attractive draw card for the brand.

WHAT WILL YOU

CREATE?

You can use the voices of Larisa and Carlton in a wide range of settings outside of traditional opera mockups: hybrid orchestra film scores, acapella at a pivotal plot point and drenched in reverb, maybe even together in a duet where other vocal libraries simply don’t deliver enough flare. But by combining Voices of Opera with Hollywood Choirs and Hollywood Orchestra Opus Edition, you can achieve nearly any large-scale sound for voice and ensemble. What will you create first?
