"With a big voice of glamour and freshness, Olga Guryakova is one of the most exciting Russian sopranos to have emerged in recent years," BBC Music Magazine wrote about Guryakova's August, 2000 recording debut as Zemfira in Rachmaninoff's Aleko.

The heightened emotional intensity Guryakova brings to everything she sings is already one of the young soprano's signature qualities. The top-to-bottom evenness and vibrancy of her voice allows her every expressive freedom, and she is able to communicate directly to the listener the essence of an operatic character or the deep emotional core of a song.
