"When the Nazis came to power, Hotter was in his mid-twenties, a member of the opera company in Prague. A dangerously good mimic, he scored a success at parties with imitations of Hitler�.[Hotter] has wise things to say about Wagnerian stage production. Brought up in the old tradition, he welcomed the Wieland revolution. The �concept� producers of more recent times are brushed off with a few sentences of broad, godlike annihilation."

- John Steane, GRAMOPHONE, Sept., 2006
