“Atalanta… sung by Sophie Pullen, is perhaps the most complex character in the opera to pull off, but her quiet scheming was clearly portrayed from the start, Pullen’s movements making her the one figure on stage that I felt I couldn’t take my eyes off.” -Adrian Horsewood, Early Music Today
“Outstanding though was her performance of Rachmaninov’s wordless Vocalise.” – The Oxford Magazine, Peter Schofield
“Sophie Pullen herself floated the heady lines of Et incarnatus est with ease” – The Lark Review
