"Sonya Yoncheva must be one of the top-10 lyric sopranos today. Her voice is rich, she's still very young and the agility and flexibility of her voice is impressive. Her gravi are perfectly audible and her high register remains as chromatic as is her medium (which is rare for this kind of voice)." http://opera-cake.blogspot.com/
