“…a voice remarkable for its flexibility, its brilliance above the staff as well as an appealingly girlish middle register, and a dead-on staccato attack up and down the scale that’s almost unique.”

- Kurt Moses, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, May/June, 2004

“Vocally, María Galvany represents an extreme case. Her virtuosity, the limpidity of her trills, roulades, and above all, her staccati lead us to think more of an instrument than of a voice. One might get the impression of listening to a canary. Nevertheless, some of her recordings are remarkable for the sweetness of her voice. Listen to the duets she made with Tita Ruffo. You will hear a singer capable to adapt the musicality of her great baritone colleague.”

- Andrea Shum-Binder, subito-cantabile
