Among other works, she has sung Dvorak’s "Stabat Mater", Brahms’ "Requiem", Mendelssohns' Elias and Pergolesi’s "Stabat Mater" with members of the Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra.

Maria-Isabella Jung is equally at home in the world of Oratorio and Lieder and has given many recitals, her repertoire ranging from Mozart to Schumann and Wagner.
She has also appeared in concerts devoted to operetta, and taken part in opera galas performing, for example, arias from Mozart’s "Così fan tutte" (Fiordiligi), Donizetti’s "Lucia di Lammermoor" (Lucia), Gounod’s "Faust" (Marguerite) and Leoncavallo’s "Bajazzo" (Nedda).
