“Mogielnicki sings with such enthusiastic ardor that she communicates the pleasure of song with authority”
“Her German appeared perfect in diction and phrasing as she filled the library with powerful gradations of emotion, whether of love or nostalgia, seemingly free of the intense technique required.”
(Millbrook Independent). 01/13/2019
