Reviews

‘The recording is excellent, with depth and ample sonority … Marinkovic makes a striking character of horrid Herman … The overall conception seems to me highly authentic.’ Gramophone

‘[Valerija Heybal] possesses a warm and appealing voice … There is plenty of excitement and the quality of recording is good.’ Opera
