CRITIC REVIEWS:

“What a wonderful discovery! Hedwig von Debicka is an unknown quality to most opera fans….Here she displays supreme vocal control, nary a waver or quaver, sensitive musicianship and interpretation….Debicka’s trill is almost incomparable – fast, tight and sustainable for any length of time….Her precise coloratura picks out each note with laser accuracy.”

- Charles H. Parsons, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, May/June, 2009



“Hedwig von Debicka sang numerous concerts and operas in Prague and, especially in Italy, with [Mattia Battistini] as her partner….her flawless control of her fine soprano voice made her an outstanding interpreter of early music.”

- Clemens Höslinger, Preiser liner notes
