Urgently recommended to serious students of art-song."

- David Mason Greene, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, Nov./Dec., 1995

“Povla Frijsh, the Danish singer of rare intelligence and individuality gave the first of four recitals last night in Aeolian Hall. This artist has never been content to follow the beaten track, either as interpreter or in the selection of her songs, interested her audience immediately….her performances with few exceptions were examples of the way in which an interpreter with feeling for words as well as music may color her tones and communicate to her listeners the inner image of two arts.”

- THE NEW YORK TIMES, 18 Jan., 1927

“Our critical faculties were suspended, and we engaged upon an experience for the next two hours which was much more than that of a mere song recital.”

- Wallace Fowlie, JOURNAL OF REHEARSALS, pp.34-36
