«Closeness and distance were the two poles of this enchanting evening …
With her colorfully shaded soprano, Dilek Geçer lent great intesity to Callisto Guatelli Pasha's song settings.
In the second half, the audience was simply enthralled by this erotically charged singing.»

«Enchantingly sweet bridgings …
Dilek Geçer's many shaded, lyrically sweet soprano was the connecting element …
indeed amazing as a stylistic balancing act …»
