“Soprano Maud Cunitz recorded in the 1950s for Decca, Telefunken, and HMV, plus numerous German radio broadcasts. She is heard here at her considerable best, a slender, penetrating tone, quite reed-like. Three excerpts from a complete 1953 HMV LOHENGRIN are heard to advantage with rest of the estimable cast: Rudolf Schock, Margarete Klose, Josef Metternich, and Gottlob Frick at the Hamburg Radio. She is joined by Frick and Karl Terkel in two excerpts from DIE HUGUENOTTEN. ‘Senta’s Ballad’ gets a stout traversal full of sturm und drang. Two excerpts from DER FREISCHÜTZ are lovingly vocalized, bursting with excitement.”

- Charles H. Parsons, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, May/June, 2012

“The German soprano Maud Cunitz was a legendary leading singer, who was completely dedicated to the ensemble of her opera house. She was self-critical and self-confident enough to never attempt a role to which she was unsuited.”
