. . . she channels that crazy into some pretty insane 17th-century arias and 18th-century operas, turning out performances as energetic and vibrant and kinetically kinky as her firebrand red hair. I'm especially eager to hear her all-Vivaldi album for Archiv . . . After all, you can't spell "Vivaldi" without "Viva."

I admire the extraordinary technique and purity of tone, the total commitment, the utter involvement, the unstinting bravery and generosity of this performer . . . She sings with great, unfaked expression and a stunning mezza-voce, with great control in the gales of coloratura and the drawn-out legatos of the slow movements alike . . . [Andrea Marcon]: bright and brilliant conducting . . .

. . . ein zweifellos originelles Album . . . Sie ist und bleibt eine der spektakulärsten deutschen Sängerinnen . . . [bei ihr] rollen immer noch mehr Köpfe als überall sonst. Sie kann nicht anders, als den Vogel abzuschießen.
