“Certain voices draw you immediately into their orbit and hold you under their spell: so it is with me and the Ukranian bass Mark Reizen….In a brief article reproduced in the booklet, Reizen tells us that he fell in love with ‘I bless you, forests’, and he sings it with eloquence….I could say something positive about every song in this memorable collection. Highly recommended.”

- Tully Potter, THE RECORD COLLECTOR, 2015

“A superb singer and powerful actor with a highly expressive, rich voice of astonishing color and range, [Reizen’s] forte was legendary, but he also had a pianissimo so expressive it could stop a rehearsal to allow Natalia Shpiller singing opposite him to regain her composure, while the rest of the cast were drying their eyes.”


“Certainly one of the most sonorous, expressive and beautifully-controlled bass voices ever to have been recorded was that of Mark Reizen. He was a legend in his own lifetime in Russia and, at the age of 90, he was still able to make a remarkable stage appearance, singing Prince Gremin in EUGEN ONÉGIN….one of the greatest bass singers of the 20th century.”

- Alan Bilgora, THE RECORD COLLECTOR, 2010
