"Never on disc have I heard this strange love story so vibrantly brought to life. Using a stage atmosphere, the acting in the linking dialogue is superb, and voices perfectly related to characters. Marlis Petersen, as Pamina, delights with her silvery soprano, her lover, Tamino, given to the beautiful lyric voice of Daniel Behle. Daniel Schmutzhard is a charming Papageno, but it is the inspirational conducting of Rene Jacobs and his period instrument orchestra that makes the release so very special. Fabulous." - David Denton, Yorkshire Post, 10 September 2010

his youthful cast gives huge pleasure: Marlis Petersen’s radiant Pamina, Daniel Behle’s lyrical, aristocratic Tamino and Daniel Schmutzhard’s garrulous Papageno are among the finest sung on disc, and Anna-Kristiina Kappola’s steely-toned Queen of the Night doesn’t miss a stitch in her coloratura runs. With uniformly excellent choral and small-part solo singing and orchestral playing, this is a Flute for high days and holidays.” - Hugh Canning, Classical CD of the Week, Sunday Times, 19 September 2010

"I suspect I shall reach for this new recording as often as any, for its bubbling, crackling theatricality and an eager, yet unforced sense of fun that never short-changes the opera's central message of human enlightenment." - Richard Wigmore, Gramophone Editor's Choice, Awards Issue 2010
