"Agnes Baltsa is the most exciting mezzo of our day. As with fellow Greek, Maria Callas, she has tremendous energy and a simply gorgeous voice." --, 2003
"Shicoff is essentially a communicative artist … the expressiveness of his singing is, to him, all-important. It's quite right: he gives himself fully and generously to everything he sings." -- Gramophone Magazine, 2003
