«Frédérique Added se distingue par la beauté de sa voix de soprano lirico-leggero, chaude et ample, ainsi que par sa musicalité et son talent musical. Elle est capable d’interpréter les œuvres les plus exigeantes de son répertoire avec goût et raffinement, grâce à son intuition innée pour la musique. Elle possède une technique irréprochable. Je vois en elle une artiste très intéressante et de grande valeur.» Professor Teresa Zylis-Gara.
