Maria Riccarda Wesseling was a revelation; her timbre reminded at times of the younger days of Waltraud Meier and she shares with that great artist an intensity and personal commitment that make her singing resonate on an emotional level. Ms. Wesseling's sustained and superbly coloured rendering of "J'ai perdu mon Eurydice" - with remarkable dynamic gradations - was so poignant; how I wish we could have her at The Met, as Gluck's Iphigenie perhaps.

Resmusica 7.2.2012
"Incarné par la voix exceptionnelle et profonde de Maria Riccarda Wesseling (...) Dans cet ultime tableau d’une grande sobriété, c’est Maria Riccarda Wesseling qui domine cependant le corps souffrant de Stéphane Bullion en Orphée"

El Mundo
“con una extraordinaria María Riccarda Wesseling como Orfeo” "La excelente Maria Riccarda Wesseling concentre toda la emoción”
