Notes & Reviews:

Sunday Times, August 2012
It is a relief to encounter a light soprano who can sing the most demanding high notes and coloratura without sounding hard pressed, metallic and shrill.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2012
The Gluck items are all done with style but it's the airs by Gretry that make the disc so desirable. Listen to the excerpt from Silvain, a complete scena only five minutes long, and you will be hooked.

International Record Review, October 2012
Karg's voice is much more than a soubrette: she numbers Pamina, Musetta and Ann Trulove in her ever-growing repertory...Cohen's Arcangelo...adds to the colour and provides stylish playing under his baton.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2012
An extremely attractive potpourri - and it's extremely attractively executed by Christiane Karg...she's an expert technician with a lovely bright voice. She is also a responsive, intelligent mood-creator and stylist...these polished performances, excellently supported by a British conductor and period band, should give much pleasure.
