"An arresting, challenging programme that finds Piau in refined, rich voice."
- Editor's Choice, Gramophone Magazine Feb 2008

"An arresting, challenging programme that finds Piau in refined, rich voice. As the cover art might suggest, Sandrine Piau's new album is dedicated to exploring the different sides of womanhood. I'm not sure I can claim to know how close she gets, but this programme - which includes songs by composers as disparate as Debussy, Richard Strauss and Zemlinsky - contains some of the most exquisite singing I have heard from this wonderful soprano."
- Editor's Choice, Gramophone Magazine Feb 2008

Sandrine Piau is one of the most highly acclaimed of the new generation of French singers specialising in Baroque music but also Offenbach and Mozart. She is here joined by the pianist Susan Manoff in a wonderful selection of poetic melodies on themes of women. This is a great CD for lovers of fine singing - her voice is ravishing and sensual.
