CRITIC REVIEW:

“What remains a matter for wonder is the complete poise of [Steber’s] vocalism from start to finish….Thoroughly composed, she wafts the gentlest, slenderest thread of tone onto the ether….Neither the long phrases nor the high-lying tessitura of ‘Dove sono’ daunt Steber; her voice is all of a piece, capable of a wide range of dynamics, the top notably firm and colorful. Best of all, she closes with a neat trill.”

- Paul Jackson, SATURDAY AFTERNOONS AT THE OLD MET, pp.309 & 310
