"Dessiner une voix"

"Le ténor alchimiste, grave, subtil, embrasé, illumine la partition, projetant sur la toile sonore sa sensibilité et son ivresse passionnée. Douceurs, fulgurances, murmures, orages, Jonas ouvre en chantant, de grandes  brèches  de lumière dans la matière musicale, s’empare du texte et des notes, imprime son timbre rayonnant, luxuriant sur la pâte sonore."
©Cathiehubert A propos de Jonas Valkyrie Barbican 2017
"Cathie paints and also writes poetry,and performs both with an unusual sensitivity"
Juan Antonio Munoz Chief editor opera El Mercurio Chile

"Chère Cathie, je viens de recevoir vos deux livres et je suis très ému... ce sont de petites merveilles. De toute beauté, ils contiennent en plus des textes magnifiques et des dessins très touchants. Je vais continuer à les lire et les relire avec bonheur, je suis très heureux de vous transmettre tous mes remerciements, sans doute au moment où Kaufmann vous porte vers le Graal."
Charles Arden editeur Magazine opera Ôlyrix .

"Opera lover and artist, I had to express what I was feeling after hearing tenor Jonas Kaufmann sing Manon Lescaut at the ROH London in 2014.

Deeply moved by the beauty of his voice and his unique, soulful,intense interpretationsI decided to paint and write what I felt, as a response to his artistry."

"Dear Cathie, your two books took my breath away! Your drawings of Jonas Kaufmann, my favorite classical artist, perfectly capture his essence and appear to jump right off the page!In addition, the words that you write "paint" an exquisite picture of the emotions Jonas inspires in you and in everyone who hears his magnificent voice."
