Bettina… knows what she can do with a text, with diction, with colors, with musical lines, legato, leggiero and all the thousand and one tools that we, artists
use to mould the meaning of an art song into the form in which it strikes right at the heart of an audience.

I would go out of my way to attend any concert at which she was singing.

Hers is one of the most perfectly focused voices I have ever heard- a clear timbre capable of extraordinary suppleness and wide range.
Bettina Smith is first and foremost a superb musician- whether singing Bach, Schubert, Chausson or Rossini, she seems perfectly adaptable to the stage.
Her warm personality on and off the stage complete her total articstic personality.
