"Ms. Yoncheva complemented Mr. Domingo beautifully, singing with a rich dark tone. She won over an audience which, of course, had not come to hear her, with her highly flexible voice, blooming top, and winning stage presence. That she held her own with a legend is a testament to her great talent and self-possession. New York was privileged to see her last year in Dido and Aeneas. In this more exposed concert format, stripped of the cloak of stagecraft, she did not disappoint."
France 3 announced the release on DVD of the documentary film, Baroque Academie.

"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/
