Don Givanni at Covent Garden
Ruxandra and Erwin as handsome Giovanni and Elvira April's "Opera" magazine cover.
Don Giovanni at Covent Garden
"[Ruxandra] Donose’s “Mi tradi” takes on a wild air, expressing Donna Elvira’s emotional trauma. Donose has a very strong background in French repertoire, so imbibes its values of intelligence and clarity. This enhances her feel for the fundamental elegance of Mozart’s style, even in an opera which should be as dangerous as Don Giovanni."
(Opera Today, Feb. 20, 2012)

"Ruxandra Donose as Elvira ... striking “Mi tradi quell'alma ingrata,” which was vocally unassailable, breathtaking." (Musical Criticism, Feb. 20, 2012)

"The Donna Elvira of Ruxandra Donose was the most successful of the evening’s ladies, with rich tone, clean articulation and keen acting; her ‘Mi tradì quell’alma ingrata’ showed her to be one step from madness… or the convent."
(Opera Britannia, Feb. 17, 2012)

Farnace in Paris
"Face à elle, sa fille, la tendre Tamiri, trouve en Ruxandra Donose une superbe interprète : la longue voix aux sombres accents nous fait partager les tourments de cette femme rejetée par sa mère et répudiée par son mari."
Forum Opera, 10.01.2012

"Die in Wien bestens bekannte Ruxandra Donose als Königin Tamiri wird neben ihrem umfangreichen klassischen Mezzo-Repertoire auch den Girlanden vivaldischer Virtuosität mit Bravour gerecht."
Der Neue Merker, 10.1.2012
In addition to "Diapason d'Or" the Franace recording was also awarded with "Choc de Classica".
Premiul de excelenta

Rosenkavalier in München
"...Ruxandra Donose, ein Octavian mit wunderbar schlanker Höhe und feiner Mittellage..."
Süddeutsche Zeitung, 3.6.2011

"...einem so erfahrenen Oktavian wie Ruxandra Donose, die zwar nicht unbedingt als gestandenes Mannsbild daherkommt, den verliebten Burschen aber mit entwaffnendem Charme und farbenreichem Mezzo so souverän gestaltet, dass sie mühelos zum Dreh- und Angelpunkt des Geschehens wird."
Münchner Merkur, 3.6.2011
