Reviews

‘The DGG sound is as clear as crystal … Hildegard Hillebrecht […] pours forth powerful, heroic tone … Jess Thomas is a robust Bacchus … Reri Grist … is my ideal Zerbinetta, precise of rhythm and intonation, witty in phrasing and verbal inflexion, tough in attack yet delectably sensual in vocal quality, the whore of one’s dreams, sweet and permissive and utterly natural, never calculating’ Gramophone
