Among the four sopranos Claire Meghnagi had the most strikingly operatic sound, in terms of projection, power and suppleness, qualities she put to superb use in the Prologue from Monteverdi's 'Orfeo'...

The New York Times, USA, April 4, 2007

And we shall give so much to see again on stage... the soprano Claire Meghnagi...>

Le Monde de la Musique, France, issue 319 April 2007

It was in numbers from Monteverdi's Orfeo that two soloists stood out: British tenor Nicholas Watts... and Israeli-Italian soprano Claire Meghnagi whose voice is... big and radiant in La Musica's introduction to the opera. All the others were onstage to listen to her; this might have been part of Rooke's plan, but perhaps it was because they didn't want to miss the most promising singing of the evening

The Guardian, UK, March 29, 2007

The second flower was Claire Meghnagi, who dared in the aria of La Musica from Orfeo and gave one of the most beautiful moments of the night with her voice of beautiful color, almost white in the pianissimi and her attractive embellishments...

ABC.es de sevilla, Spain, March 13, 2007

"The minute soprano Claire Meghnagi started to sing, a beautiful voice with a unique colored vibrao that touched me deeply... she seemed to be able to sing anything on one breath, and her piano notes carried consistently... in contrast to the other singers she needs no work for her perfect dramatic skills and her expressive voice... Claire Meghnagi - a name to remember"
