(Translated from German)

„ It is awe-inspiring how Rachel Goldenfeld masters the technical demands of the entrance aria of the hapless queen's, with its alternations from slow, majestic passages to raging coloraturas, and presented technical perfection with deeply expressive and warm, almost mezzo-like timbre in Didone's final aria "Ah, che dissi, infelice!" “
