Glasgow Royal Concert Hall

"...what a team of soloists Cohen had at his disposal: every one a star, with countertenor Tim Mead, tenor Benjamin Hulett, the fabulous bass Neal Davies, and glorious German soprano Lydia Teuscher, all in outstanding form." Michael Tumelty / Herald Scotland / 3 January 2014



Barbican Hall, London

"Soprano Lydia Teuscher’s light, lyric approach brought freshness to her arias. Rejoice greatly could easily have been from Semele, and I know that my Redeemer liveth had the sincerity and confidence  Lark Reviews / 18 December 2013


Aci, Galatea e Polifemo

Le Concert D'Astree/Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center, New York

"In the mingled-sex fashion of the Baroque, Aci was a soprano, Lydia Teuscher, and Galatea a mezzo-soprano, Delphine Galou. Both, in their New York debuts, were excellent. Ms. Teuscher was especially lovely in tone to the top of her range"
James Oestreich, New York Times, 27 October 2013
"Teuscher revealed a sweetly shining soprano which reveled in Aci’s high-lying music. Her warm quick vibrato made a welcome change from the straight-toned voices one sometimes hears in the part ... she was particularly winning in “Qui l’augel da pianta in pianta,” Aci’s “bird” aria"
De Caffarrelli,, 27 October 2013

Le nozze di Figaro - Cherubino


"There's a great Cherubino, funny yet touching, from Lydia Teuscher."
Tim Ashley, The Guardian, 10 June 2013
"Lydia Teuscher’s Cherubino is pure joy" Laura Battle, Financial Times, 10 June 2013
"but the best performance, by a short head, is Lydia Teuscher as Cherubino.  Last year, when I saw Isabel Leonard in the role, I doubted that she would ever be matched, but Teuscher (who played Susannah last year) brings the same air of pure mischief to the part and is a pure delight." 
William Hartson, The Express, 11 June 2013
