"an irresistible bundle of vocal fizz and sexual charisma" (Financial Times)
“..there’s a charisma that seems to emanate from her voice itself … an extraordinarily powerful and bell-like soprano" (The Independent)
“sexy, witty, compelling – at a level rarely seen on an opera stage” (New Statesman)
“Her vocal and musical vitality shines out of every track”
23rd July 2010
“Their vocal virtues remain unaltered: clarity of attack, a fluidity across all registers, a voice full of sunshine and joy.”
“The young soprano displays impressive technical skills in her singing of florid music; scales and other passagework are immaculate in clarity and evenness, and they are blessedly innocent of aspirates and other easing devices.”
“[Jenkins's] brief setting of Exsultate Jubilate for de Niese is great fun, with chugging strings and excitable vocal line giving way to a more mellow middle section before returning to the 'A' section with some wildly exciting high B naturals.”
