(English) "Diana Damrau is pretty much my ideal in the demanding role of Konstanze, switching from fire to ice in a heartbeat and as compelling in the long-breathed lines of the great lament ‘Traurigkeit’ as she is in the defiant pyrotechnics of ‘Marten aller Arten’."
– (English) Katherine Cooper - Presto Classical
(English) "Diana Damrau’s Konstanze is a particular delight, breezing through the coloratura that Mozart wrote for original diva Caterina Cavalieri. Yet Damrau’s performance is so much more than pyrotechnics, bringing depth of sound and a floating pianissimo to more tender moments."
– (English) Gavin Plumley - Sinfini Music
