"Kozlovsky pulls tempos about freely, exaggerates changes in volume, and is ever ready to interpolate high notes....For Kozlovsky, singing was obviously more than a job. He threw himself into every phrase, and there's always a face behind the words....the flowing legato, the easy emission, the fervor and personality that imbue every utterance. He makes most tenors sound rather dull. The voice emerges clearly in Myto's transfers....Enthusiastically recommended."
- Ralph V. Lucano, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, September/October, 1992
“Kozlovsky's voice was distinguished for its beautiful high register and rich palette of shadings. He sang more than 50 operatic rôles, and was especially famous as Lensky in EUGENE ONÉGIN. They say that Ivan Kozlovsky considered his voice as his one and only possession and prayed every morning thanking the Lord for the priceless gift He gave him.”
- Olga Fyodorova
“One way of dividing the world seems to be into admirers and detractors of Ivan Kozlovsky. For the former, the succulent, dripping sweetness of the Russian tenor provides a paragon of bel canto, exquisite, long-held soft head notes, phrases caressed and pressed out of familiar shape….the portrait of an extraordinary singer….”
