Reviews

“Adrianne Pieczonka’s Elsa is also scrupulously delivered, once again with a delicacy and ethereality that summon up the character in the mind’s eye, yet with piercing potency where necessary…it surely merits a place among the most beautifully sung.”

Opera, June 2009

“Adrianne Pieczonka’s…distinctive soprano easily manages Elsa’s strangeness, her misapprehension, her doubts, and her naiveté. She’s gorgeous in her opening narrative and in “Euch luften”, stronger in the Love duet and dark when she realizes what she’s done…she’s splendid.”

Classics Today, 30 April 2009

“Johan Botha (Lohengrin) and Adrianne Pieczonka (as Lohengrin’s fatally curious bride) prove themselves ideal Wagnerians with their powerful, clarion-clear voices.”

ClassicFM, June 2009

“Adrianne Pieczonka, one of the top Wagnerian singers of our time, is in fabulous form as Elsa of Brabant in this majestic reading of Lohengrin.”

Toronto Star, 12 May 2009

“A glorious sense of line throughout the Act 2 duet between Adrianne Pieczonka’s Elsa and Petra Lang’s Ortrud.”

Financial Times, 19 April 2009

“…there is a radiance to much of [Adrianne Pieczonka's] singing.”

Guardian, 15 May 2009
