'Stunning performances' (BBC Record Review)

'The interpretations are passionate … and what a voice … Gomez is equal to the best who came before her. Her light, agile, soaring voice rises ecstatically above the massed cellos’ dusky rain-forest wall of sound like the brilliant plumage of some rare Amazonian bird-in-flight … thoroughly captivating' (American Record Guide)
