Review By Steven Ritter,Audiophile Audition,May 2013

…[Sasha Cooke] was the perfect voice for the role, recreating the best aria in the opera for this recording… she is extremely focused in her presentation, with a vibrato that is fast, almost old school, completely under control and variable according to need. Tonal qualities are superb, with rich coloring and resonant partials. There is little sense of effort in her transitional effects in long jumps, and her sense of legato and line, to say nothing of a wonderful penchant for effective and long breath control, is excellent.
