Raymond Tuttle
Fanfare, November 2007

Andrzej Hiolski and Tatiana Troyanos give what must be definitive performances, but this is an ensemble piece, and the Hamburg forces excel throughout.

Phillip Scott
Fanfare, September 2007

Singing…are of a high level throughout. These performers were thoroughly committed to the drama. A standout on camera is the creepy doctor of Heinz Blankenburg—Fritz Lang would have loved him!—and it is good to see another singer at the beginning of an international career, bass-baritone Hans Sotin. Hiolski is strong in the important role of Grandier, but more convincing as a victim of torture than an object of lust. The opera orchestra attacks the music with confidence; the mono sound allows everything to be heard. © 2007 Fanfare Read complete review
