CRITIC REVIEWS:

"No words can praise too highly the contribution of the orchestral players here. Their ensemble efforts and individual solo contributions are of a uniformly high standard...the cast is a strong one and probably as well chosen as possible right now...[this recording] is unlikely to be superseded for many years to come."

- Vivian Liff, ARG





“Vesselina Kasarova's repertoire ranges from Donizetti to Wagner. Critics rave over her voice and her character depictions are the gold standard for young singers aspiring to opera stardom.

Her singing appears effortless, burnished and warm in the lower registers and as clearly textured and free-flowing as clover honey up top – a voice New York Times critic Anthony Tommasini described in 1999 as ‘unforgettable and deeply affecting’. Her dramatic skills are superb, letting her master even pathos-ridden roles without being maudlin. She owns the stage – and seems to do so naturally.

She debuted internationally at the 1991 Salzburg Festival as Annio in Mozart's LA CLEMENZA DI TITO. Since then, she has appeared on many of the world's major opera stages and expanded her repertoire to the point where she is equally at home with the works of Wagner and Richard Strauss, French opera, lieder and oratorios both live and in the recording studio.”
