“Their distress comes across powerfully … in Lesya Aleksyeyeva’s outstanding soprano voice. Despite her petite frame, the tone, quality and volume of her voice were a level above everybody else. Masami Uehara is competent in the role …, but Aleksyeyeva is by far and away the shining light with soaring high notes and beautifully harsh edge to her anguished arias… She is in some respects already an accomplished international singer.”

Bachtrack Katy S Austin, 28 June 2011
