Izzy is one of the early success stories of classical crossover, releasing her debut album Libera Me with Decca records in 1999. She topped the classical charts in the UK and Japan and similar success followed her to the third studio album New Dawn. She even enjoyed success in the UK singles chart when she featured on a remixed version of Hans Zimmer's signature piece 'Now We Are Free' from Gladiator. Being one of the earliest crossover sopranos launched in the UK, her material is not as experimental or pop orientated as artists that were to flood through later. She tackles arias and traditional pieces, but in a distinctive way. Particular highlights are 'Un Bel Di Vedremo', 'Una Furtiva Lagrima' and 'My Love Is Like A Red Red Rose'. You are sure to enjoy Izzy if you love the more classical side to crossover.

It seems odd to discover a voice you love after being on this site for quite a few years, but that's what happened after I watched Izzy's videos on YouTube. She has been in classical crossover for such a long time compared to most of the other female artists and yet tonight was the first time I was introduced to her. I am purchasing her albums. Is she still appearing in concert?

I do enjoy the more 'Classical Side' as Nicola says in regular doses and this fills that need very nicely indeed!
