Notes & Reviews:

International Record Review, January 2012
The show belongs to Cotrubas from start to finish. On shining form throughout, this Violetta impresses especially in the great scena ending Act 1... Among the currently available 'live' Violettas on CD, it is by far the most affecting...[Krips] gives a notably unfussy traversal of the score. He brings it forth from an orchestra that offers the listener wonderful fullness and sheen, as well as the essential rhythmic punch.

Gramophone Magazine, April 2012
There is Ileana Cotrubas , her local debut in a role that made her famous. The voice is ideal for Violetta, true not not creamy, pure without being white or colourless. Her emotional understanding of the role treads a fine line of pride, sadness, defiance, self-pity and understanding.
