Télérama Logo“Aux côtés des instrumentistes, qui jouent avec une joie évidente et communicative, la soprano Rachel Redmond, issue du Jardin des voix de William Christie, ne se contente pas de chanter (d’une voix ravissante, claire et riche), mais elle reprend également à son compte l’impressionnant éventail émotionnel déployé par les textes, allant de la romance à la tragédie en passant par la farce.”

Platea magazine Logo“…Sobresalió también la joven soprano de Glasgow, Rachel Redmon, quien deslumbró en el acto segundo, después de un soberbio número previo de eco con las trompetas barrocas por parte de la orquesta, con la onírica canción del personaje de La Noche: See, even Night herself is here, con una atmósfera inquietante conseguida por el acompañamiento instrumental de serena candidez, la soprano destiló con elegancia y belleza turbadora su voz impoluta y de seductora homogeneidad y expresión.”
