Dr. Kristina Rizzotto

Official website of the Latvian Brazilian organist Dr. Kristina Rizzotto


“Rizzotto mastered the instrument from the beginning to the end, proving to be a
skilled, talented, and virtuosic interpreter. Her fine sensibility and musical knowledge
enabled her to express herself naturally, without unnecessary outbursts, with
which she managed to give each piece its exact style and its nature…” El Diario
