"Betty Olivero is one of the most authentic musical forces now, one of the most self-aware and deeply connected to today's Jewish music (...) As a composer, she is a most impressive voice in Jewish culture and an important presence from a worldwide perspective as well. What is great about her is that she doesn't use the tradition as an ideological tool or, worse, as a political tool. She uses the spiritual dimension (...) Israel should be proud of her (...)"

Luciano Berio, Ha'aretz magazine

Olivero with conductor Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, 2002
