Inkinen, as well as Lise Lindstrom and Stefan Vinke who are already known as highly experienced Wagner performers.

She has also performed excerpts from Siegfried and Götterdämmerung in the same role with the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra under Pietari Inkinen.
“Lindstrom brings instant star quality to the role of Brünnhilde. Her voice clear but rich, and with plenty of character, even in the high register. Her vibrato is wide and slow, and ever-present, so there is never any sense of gradually warming long notes—it’s right there from the start.”
