The Whole Note reviews Soirée
"A lovely, relaxed musical evening you will cherish."
"How nice it is that a singer would take some time out of her crazy, busy life, sit down with friends and a few drinks and sing her favourite songs. And that’s exactly what by-now-world-famous-Czech mezzo, award-winning recitalist, recording artist and opera star, Magdalena Kožená, does here [...] Naturally she is strongest in her native Czech and Moravian idiom. She sings with youthful freshness and confidence. Especially impressive and unique are the 'Nursery'Rhymes' by Janáček; some are outrageously funny. And I am happy she included one of my all-time favourite songs by Dvořák,'When my mother taught me'."
