Opera Canada‘s latest issue says Adrianne Pieczonka Sings Strauss • Wagner is “well worth listening to”:
“What most struck me were her clean, sweet sound and her relatively straightforward approach to text. … Pieczonka’s work is all beautifully musical…and she can darken the colour when she wants/needs to…She maintains her sweet tone all the way up to her highest notes without ever sounding harsh and can really float a note when she needs to. … it’s unfailingly musical… [In the Wagner Pieczonka] uses the additional freedom piano accompaniment gives to good effect in shaping the line. … Her command of colour is again evident, too, with a much darker, more Wagnerian, tone coming in…it’s well worth listening to…” —John Gilks
