«The manifestation of the performance was Galina Benevich (cunegonde), a young singer from Israel, endowed with a dark soprano, marked with a light sparkling and a perfectly open top and very precise coloratura ...»
«I know various facets of her (Galina's) talent and I sincerely believe in her great creative potential. But especially I want to express my satisfaction and admiration of her interpretation of my extended triform opus “Sol-Fa” which is extremely difficult to perform. Here G. Khlyzova (later Benevich) clearly demonstrated bright vocal technique, high solid professionalism, sense of manner, latitude of tessitura range and expressive singing. It is necessary to note her scenic plasticity, artistic charm and elegance that are also considerable rarity on the opera and concert stages.»
