"Many 'name' singers have glided through 'Figaro' as if leading a museum tour; these performers, however, aren't afraid to show some skin, vocally speaking, and in so doing they get closer to the flesh-and-blood Mozart than any other cast on record," wrote Alex Ross in a review of the Jacobs recording for The New Yorker of September 27, 2004.

"IT'S easy to see why this period instrument recording of Mozart's operatic masterpiece has received just about every award known to the music industry," wrote Frank Carroll for the Sunday Herald.

"L'ensemble de cette distribution est nettement dominé par Angela Kirchschlager et Simon Keenlyside. De sa voix large, la chanteuse donne à Cherubin la verve et le trouble d'un adolescent en proie à la découverte du désir et de la sexualité, sans pour autant oublier le sourire du garçon qu'il était encore avant le début de l'opéra. Intelligent, pertinent, séduisant, racé, le comte de Simon Keenlyside se distingue lui aussi par son chant à la ligne à la fois sûre et souple."--Bruno Galibert, surlering.com
