Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
"The ensemble of the four – soprano Emily Birsan. . . – was exemplary, and their solo passages eloquent – and audible. It was a rare privilege to hear all soloists, but I shall never forget . . . or the limber power and sensitivity of Emily Birsan's soprano as it lofted over the walls of sound from chorus and orchestra.”
- Australian Book Review
"The stage was graced with a quartet of first-rate soloists: soprano Emily Birsan was expressive and technically sure, always concerned with balance"
