"Le choix de jumeler ces lieder et leurs versions arrangées était intéressant. Il permettait d’apprécier les qualités de chaque instrument dans l’interprétation d’une œuvre. Dominique Labelle a fait preuve d’une excellente diction. Aidée par sa voix puissante, qui alternait entre des nuances douces et fortes, la soprano a livré le texte avec émotion et authenticité."

Justin Bernard, Myscena.org,Juin 2019

"expressively and artistically a master"

Radamisto, Opera Lafayette

Anne Midgette, Washington Post, February 2019

"Soprano Dominique Labelle, who sang a supporting role on Alan Curtis’s top-notch recording, was upgraded here to sing Polissena. An Opera Lafayette regular for years, her voice has grown in scope, with dramatic weight that gave the role considerable dignity."

Charles T. Downing, Washington Classical review, February 2019

"Le choix des solistes prouvait que la musique baroque n’a pas à être le refuge de ceux qui ne trouvent pas d’emploi ailleurs. Il est admirable de pouvoir entendre des cantates de Bach chantées avec le volume et l’aplomb de Dominique Labelle ou de Stephen Hegedus." I Musici

Christoph Huss, Le Devoir, décembre 2018

"En maître des passions humaines, chasseur / révélateur du sentiment enfoui, Haëndel sait développer le vertige profond, en particulier celui qui inspire à Atalante (très convaincante Dominique Labelle) son grand monologue du II (« ‘Lassa! ch’io t’ho perduta »), où la jeune chasseresse exprime son trouble et ses tiraillements car elle comprend qu’elle se ment à elle-même, foudroyée en vérité par le jeune Méléagre."

Camille De Joyeuse, classiquenews.com, Sept 2018

"Again, Dominique Labelle held the crowd breathless. I hear no attempt on her behalf to sing straight, as they say. It is inherent in her voice that the tones are already heard before they are sung, and the depth of this brings tears to the eyes."

Keith Kibler, Berkshire Hudson Arts, July 2018

"...to the accompaniment of the full ensemble, Labelle's dark, luscious voice, with its mezzo tints, rewarded the ears. Bach's recurring invocation to let weary eyes fall into sleep was so soothing it became all but

a seduction."

Andrew L. Pincus, Berkshire Eagle, June 2018                                                      

“The group’s performance was a landmark for me, the kind of concert you don’t forget. This was due largely to the profoundly beautiful singing of soprano Dominique Labelle…Her sound came out of the air and went back into the air with passion…a great musical conjurer.”

Keith Kibler, Berkshire Hudson Arts, July 2017

“Labelle showed she has lost nothing in this regard during her time away from the festival. Her voice is still remarkable for its depth of timbre and its many colours, the strong gleaming high notes and equal power across its range…”

Sandra Bowdler, Bachtrack.com, May 2017

“Labelle has a wonderful voice for this repertoire, clear and light but with plenty of staying power for the extended vocal displays; and the instrumental playing that backs her up is impeccable.”
