Notes & Reviews:
"Koke excels in the lower ranges of Parthenia's music, but when the register and coloratura get high she tends to sharpen in sound, if not in pitch. Targler's uncomfortable and working hard. Voigt's basic voice is good, but he tends to be weighty, ponerous. Wendel's dark, burly bass is just right for Hercules and he works well with the text. Still, this is an opera worth hearing." - Parsons, American Record Guide
