She sings Senta’s ballad and the duets with her fiancé Erik as well as the idolized stranger with striking self-assurance. The clarity of her diction blended with [...] at the finest level."

"The german soprano soloist Tanja Kuhn sang with a pleasant warm and round voice. She moved with agility between the various changing faces of the piece, always being perfect in the intonation and in intention, even during the difficu melodic exchanges with the Choir, unexceptionable and secure in every single Moment.
