Julianne Baird as Emira in Handel's Siroe
"... brilliantly sung on this recording by Julianne Baird, a bright voiced soprano with unusual flexibility and a terrific trill."
Boston Patriot Ledger (March 1991)
Baird is a fine fresh voice."
American Record Guide (Aug 1991)
touches the heart not only with the gently plaintive quality of her voice,
but with her way of executing trills and ornaments... Her execution
is so natural and graceful that the athletic aspect ornamentation is virtually
absent: one is aware only of some new aspect being brought to the repeat
section of the aria."
