Notes and Editorial Reviews
Mr. Heppner's firm, strong tone is technically superior to that of any heldentenor now operating. With Mr. Davis's intelligent backing, Mr. Heppner creates a restrained, noble Lohengrin, dramatically cautious at times but impeccably musical.

-- Alex Ross, The New York Times [2/1/1996]
