CRITIC REVIEWS:

“Borkh was one of the great heldensoprans of the 1950s and 1960s. A consummate singing-actress with a distinctive voice and a strikingly beautiful woman, Borkh made her mark on the pages of opera history as a stunning Salome and Elektra.”

- Charles H. Parsons, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, July/Aug., 2007



[Borkh] was a Teutonic Callas – hysterical, a wild beast in every sense, but a brilliant singer.

- Georg Solti, MEMOIRS, p.76
