... She is helped greatly by the keen feeling for phrase and rhythm in her conductor Hartmut Haenchen and his players. Their work is sufficiently strong in expression for the young singer to have at any rate some of the responsibility taken off her shoulders, and for a listener to be able to enjoy the voice and technical accomplishment which are in such fine flower. She sings a melody both gently and firmly, without pressing or fussing it; her scale-work is immaculate, as is her intonation. The tone itself is the most lovely thing of all, and we have to reflect that greater expressiveness may come with time, but this is that precious and often short-lived season, the springtime of the voice.
