Soprano Leslie Ann Bradley is featured.
The trickiest phrase is near the end, when the soprano enters on a F dolcissimo, seemingly out of thin air, then soars to a magnificent crescendo in aline that requires consummate poise and seemingly inexhaustible reserves of breath. The exacting passage sounded like a cakewalk for Bradley, who executed it with a lovely shimmering soprano.” -Joseph So, Opera Canada
