"Maria Cebotari (1910-49) was widely admired for the freshness and charm of her singing and her stage presence. She created the role of Aminta in Strauss' DIE SCHWEIGSAME FRAU. Karajan made some 78rpm recordings with her, including an aria from Johann Strauss' DER ZIGEUNERBARON and Ariadne's 'Es gibt ein Reich'."
- Richard Osborne, CONVERSATIONS WITH VON KARAJAN, p.114
"When the Vienna Opera rose again out of the rubble, the spirit of Maria Cebotari must have hung sometimes over this, her last opera house, where she had reached unforgettable peaks of performance....Maria Cebotari was discovered by Busch and sang in Dresden for twelve years."
- Kurt Pahlen, GREAT SINGERS, p.97
