Review By Peter Loewen,American Record Guide,September 2012

Hasse’s music is absolutely gorgeous, and Valer Berna-Sabadus’s singing is astonishing! Of course his voice is high, but that seems beside the point when one considers the extreme subtlety of his voice. There is no reaching or screeching here, only pure beauty.


Review By L’éducation musicale,March 2012

Un disque événement puisqu’il s’agit du premier enregistrement du jeune contre-ténor roumain, Valer Barna-Sabadus, né en 1986, dans un programme tout entier consacré au compositeur Johann Adolph Hasse (1699-1783), compositeur saxon, ayant fait l’essentiel de sa carrière à Dresde, y devenant maître de chapelle en 1730, après avoir séjourné pendant plusieurs années en Italie où il rencontra le célèbre castrat, Farinelli.  Programme comportant des airs tirés de Didonne abbandonata (1742),  La Gelosia (1762) et Artaserse (1734) qui fait la part belle à la voix, où l’on peut retrouver des accents


Review By Remy Franck,Pizzicato,March 2012

Opulenz pur: Auf seiner Debüt- Solo-CD singt Valer Barna-Sabadus Arien von Johann Adolph Hasse (1699-1783), dem ‘caro Sassone’, dessen ‘Artaserse’ 1734 beim Karneval in Venedig mit dem berühmten Kastraten Farinelli uraufgeführt wurde.
