"Gheorghiu displays her Verdian skills, her formidable technique and expressive power pushed to their limits but ultimately convincing." BBC Music Magazine, May 2013 *****

"This eclectic programme makes a welcome change from recorded recitals devoted to one composer, one genre. Gheorghiu avers, in a disarmingly frank note, that she thrives on change, loves to be in different countries and experience different idioms so she "wanted to create a unique recital programme that would reflect all these aspects of my interests". She certainly has done that: her generous choice boxes the compass from classical through German, Spanish, Italian and French song to ethnic pieces." (Gramophone on 'My World')

"Not only is Angela Gheorghiu in resplendent voice, the tone richer than for some time, but the beauty of her high notes is floated with Elysian, transcendental beauty. I would not usually recommend a disc for a single track, but in this case I would say her performance of Pace, Pace Mio Dio, from La Forze del Destino, alone makes this disc worth it's price." (MusicWeb on Verdi Heroines)
