Description
"The star of the show is Bulgarian soprano Iordanka Derilova, who, with fiery red hair and lots of attitude, looks the part of a youthful Irish princess. Derilova is unquestionably the sexiest Isolde I've seen, in the theater or on video…. [Her] performance in act I is also spot-on, full of contempt and sarcasm. The 'Liebestod' doesn't disappoint…. Alexandra Petersamer sings confidently, with an appealing warmth that communicates tenderness and concern—the audience clearly approves of her portrayal of Brangäne with their response at the curtain calls."—Fanfare

"Derilova has a trim, slim build like a competitive swimmer. I wondered at first how she would ever muster enough sound to be heard over the large orchestra. But when she first opened her mouth an astounding volume of clear and tonally rich sound emerged. It was soon obvious that she can really belt it out. Moreover, she was as strong in the concluding Liebestod as at the very beginning…. Unless I am mistaken, and although she may be the smallest singer ever to sing the role, this 36-year old ball of fire is destined for stardom. Then there's the Anhaltische Philharmonie Dessau and its conductor Golo Berg. How does this team fare alongside those based in London, Berlin, Bayreuth, New York, and Vienna? Well, a lot better than you might imagine. It is a little less polished, but it surely comes off well in comparison with the London Philharmonic in the OpusArte recording…. This was for me a thrilling experience, and I regard it as quite competitive with any other video production."—American Record Guide
