"In between all those neo-baroque figures, whose external appearance is borrowed from the world of fantasy books and film, the soprano Angela Tunstall moves as Eva: the original mother of all musical education."

                                                                                                                        - Die Berliner Zeitung

"Angela Tunstall is best known for her work with the “Godfather of Contemporary Music”, Karlheinz Stockhausen. He was so inspired by her remarkable abilities as a singer he invited her to create the role of Eva in his Opera 'Freitag aus Licht'."


"She employed a melange of languages and a thesaurus of expressions and vocal styles from purring to guttural, from monosyllabic to florid and melismatic; she was impassioned; she was hilarious; she crooned and crowed; and all the while the Concert for Piano and Quintet did its own thing in its own unpredictable way."

                                                                                                                                         - The Herald

"The excellence of the singing by Angela Tunstall was considerable, and the music is plainly the work of a fine creative mind."
