BEAUTIFUL FRUITY TIMBRE
of Caroline Bruker (soprano) who sings a delicious Bätely that illuminates the entire performance. It is a joy for me to hear her every time, both for the quality of her timbre and singing and for the intelligence with which she musically composes all the facets of the dramatic character.”
