CD Review Chandos `Senhora del Mundo’
“Performances throughout are exemplary, with Stowe’s bright, captivating voice, full of longing and loss, life and lustiness”.
Musical times Meltdown Festival, South Bank Centre
“Sara Stowe was on top form throughout, in these, as well as coping with the astounding vocal difficulties of two of Scelsi’s extraordinary Canti del Capricorno”.
Guardian Spitalfields Festival, London
“…the Greek work showed the hard edge of her vivid declamation, these Chinese songs were more softly focused and suiting perfectly her sweet subtle and unaffected tone and attractive delivery, and revealing her musicianship”.
Times Almeida festival, London
“Miss Stowe here proved herself ..a virtuoso,.. her voice ripping at once with fury and exhileration, whereas in the slumber song it had been magically clear and captivating.”

“In this concert Sara Stowe’s performance of Kagel’s Recitaviarie’ provides the moment of enlightenment because hers is a splendidly committed representation of the work’s blasphemous protagonist.”
West Sussex County Times
Catalan, Basque and old Castilian folksongs, carols and airs were enchantingly sung by Sara Stowe; and how could even Don Quixote himself have resisted her most expressive and evocative performance of ‘From Rosy Bowers’?
