"If I had to indicate last night's star, I would immediately point out the enchanting soprano Claire Meghnagi. Meghnagi was a brilliant cast in every way - one of Israel's best baroque singers; she performes quite a lot abroad in recent years as well. Among others, she collaborated with the legendary William Christie, and the experience and ripeness she gained were well shown last night. Her singing was pure, refined, full of elegance and expression, leading her audience into tears in several points. After her arias I was really upset that the frozen format of modern concert prevented us from bursting in applause and demand she sings them again. Such applause were totally in place"
"A delightful experience - as expected, to a large extent thanks to the radiant performance of soprano Claire Meghnagi..."
"Soprano Claire Meghnagi's performance was outstanding. Her gorgeous, pearly voice is consistent in all registers, she weaves emotional meaning into melodic lines, gliding easily and leaning comfortably into ornaments. The audience was moved by the brilliance, the beauty and the poignancy of her performance"
