„11. INTERNATIONAL HILDE ZADEK-SINGING COMPETITION “. Final Concert, April 2019, Vienna, Musikverein/Gläserner Saal
The last of the 6 performers left on me the best overall impression, the 28-year-old Josipa Bainac from Zagreb. First, she was much looser in appearance, with the best articulation of lyrics (German and Italian), coupled with very expressive singing, and she was always right in the middle of the role. After 2 Schubert songs (Die Forelle, Frühlingsglaube) performed with charm and feeling, and a section of Johanna Doderer's "Liliom", she delighted with warm middle register of her voice and compelling Italian lyric as Puccini's Mimi - every word, every sound was a pleasure and sparkling from loveliness! After all, she received 3 awards.

Junge Schubertiade Wien, October 2017, Austria
Dear All, I am extremely happy and proud that the young soprano Josipa Bainac, with her remarkable wonderful timbre, will perform three songs from the song cycle of the successful Austrian composer Johanna Doderer at the Junge Schubertiade Wien 2017. The vocal timbre and the strong middle range of Josipa Bainac are very suitable for these songs.

Soprano Josipa Bainac, accompanied by Sarajevo Music Academy String Orchestra, enchanted us with her outstanding musicality during performance of the well-known Purcell song "O solitude". The art of this gifted soprano came to its glorious peak three times during the concert, in the three famous and demanding arias ... In Handel's coloratura "Oh! Had I Jubal's Lyre" from the Oratorio Joshua, this young soprano has shown that she is not just an expressive artist but also a virtuoso singer with charming vocal technique. Her last two performances, Cleopatra's aria "Piangero la sorte mia" from Handel's opera Julius Caesar and Eurydice's Aria "Qual vita e questo ... che fiero momento" by Glücks Orpheus and Eurydice, brought together all aspects of this singer's art - expressiveness, sensuality, excellent voice control and vocal technique. With this, Bainac has won the hearts of the audience.

Schubertiade Hohenems, June 2016, Austria
The Croatian soprano Josipa Bainac astonished me all week with her accomplished interpretations, glorious tone, and what Thomas Hampson called the "extra-musical" communication that enriches Lieder singing. Her performances of Schumann's "Widmung" and Schubert's "Suleika I" were memorable. Just where her vocal career is headed I'm not sure - Susanna? Adina? Mimi? - but I know I want to go there. Her pianist, David Hausknecht, was also terrific."
