CRITIC REVIEWS:

“In comparison with her contemporaries, Grümmer was a greatly under-recorded soprano. Since she possessed an attractive, cream-toned voice, a splendid florid technique, and a smooth legato delivery allied to a pleasing stage presence, it is curious that she was so neglected by the major record companies.”

- Vivian A. Liff, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, May / June, 2011



"Elisabeth Grümmer was one of a wonderful constellation of German lyric sopranos who dominated the Central European opera houses and concert halls in the 1950s and '60s."

- Kurt Moses, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, March/April, 2010



"Elisabeth Grümmer was one of the best German lyric sopranos of the 1950's and 60s….the listener will be struck by [her voice’s] beauty, its evenness and smoothness over its entire range. Grümmer was a stylish singer who colored her voice well and gave convincing portrayals of her operatic heroines."

- Kurt Moses, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, Jan./Feb., 2005
