Elisenda has developed a very flexible style, a subtle and charismatic tone. She incorporates her knowledge of extended vocal techniques and alternative means of tone-production, based on her ongoing research into the contemporary repertoire. She feels at home around improvisation as much as with written repertoire.

Her repertoire encompasses a wide range, from renaissance music to contemporary pieces. She has premiered operas by A. G. Demestres at the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya & at Festival del Castell de Peralada. She had her debut with the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra at the Auditori de Barcelona. And participated at the New Music Incubator, Croatia and Belgium. She recently premiered Walking Opera by Ruta Vitkauskaite in Aarhus and London.

She has collaborated with such contemporary leading ensembles as Slagwerk Den Haag, VocalLAB, MUTU Ensemble, NJO, Muziektheater Transparant, the Ereprijs Orkest, VersArt duo, Esfera Ensemble. She offered masterclasses on contemporary vocal music at the East Anglia University and at Tel Aviv Music Univerity. She has performed at the Bimhuis and at the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ Amsterdam, Theater Korzo, Studio Loos, the Hague, Unerhörte Musik Berlin, Felicja Blumental and Levontin Seven Tel Aviv, Is Arti Lithuania, Palau de la Música Catalana Barcelona, o Teatros del Canal Madrid, among other venues.

In the field of Baroque music, she has collaborated with the ensembles Al Ayre Español, Música Temprana and Música Barroca de Girona. Elisenda is a cofounder and a member of Allegoria Ensemble, with whom she has performed broadly in Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands (Holland Festival, Utrecht Oude Muziek Festival, and Festivals such as Peñiscola, Cáceres, Barcelona, Salamanca).
