CRITIC REVIEWS:

"The [Frijsh] set is equipped with a handsome booklet containing reminiscences by Philip Miller, among others, a biography by the singer's nephew Einar Hoff, an article on song interpretation by the singer herself, a complete discography, and almost all the texts. Urgently recommended to serious students of art-song."

- David Mason Greene, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, Nov./Dec., 1995



"Povla Frijsh…is a remarkable musician, an interpreter of intelligence and high temperament….she gives a deep musical pleasure. She is mistress of her art."

- Virgil Thomson, THE NEW YORK HERALD TRIBUNE, 1946



“Povla Frijsh mainly sang in concerts and recitals; although she did make a few opera appearances at the Paris Opera and the Royal Danish Theatre. She toured with artists including Raoul Pugno, Pablo Casals, and Jacques Thibaud. She was a champion of contemporary classical music, and was an important exponent of the works of Virgil Thomson, Randall Thompson, Francis Poulenc, Rebecca Clarke, and Samuel Barber. After a 49-year-long performance career, she retired from singing in 1947.”
