«WolfsbuferNachrichetehn: “Lilia Gamberini enchants her listeners in the opera world with her warm tone. At the same time, she sings a seductive declaration of love, she laments lost love and hope, o nurtures fearful expectations, her voice takes the listener and bewitches them. You have to listen to her; you feel her timbre throughout your entire body. Lilia Gamberini expresses through song an inner reality.” “…With arias by Donizetti and Puccini, the captivating soprano has rapidly acquired renown without flaws of power, but with total control of the voice, each time fabulously contained. She gives a delicate pianissimo. L.G. has executed her role with a crescendo, until the highest, most felt and emphatic magical enchantment of the senses.” (WBO)»
