About

Pumeza’s second album Arias is a collection of many of the great opera roles in which Pumeza has blossomed: Mimi in La bohème; Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro; Liù in Turandot; Dido in Dido & Aeneas; Concepción in L’Heure espagnole together with such operatic greatest hits as the ‘Song to the Moon’ from Rusalka and ‘Ebben, ne andro lontano’ from La Wally.

The album also features new arrangements of art songs such as Fauré’s Après un rêve and Reynaldo Hahn’s À Chloris as well as a Rosa Ponselle favourite, Tosti’s Si tu le voulais.

Also included are arrangements of Sarti’s famous aria Lungi del caro bene made by Decca for Renata Tebaldi in the 1970s and recorded here for the first time since then, and an arrangement of the classic song La Paloma originally made for Victoria de los Angeles.

Reviews

The South African lyric soprano Pumeza Matshikiza, now enjoying an international reputation, has versatility, range and huge personality. Her voice is rich without heaviness, capable of teasing lightness and flexibility, as the selection here demonstrates. She opens with a tender Si, mi chiamano Mimi from Puccini’s La bohème (Mimi is one of her signature roles) and travels via Hahn, Fauré and Ravel back to Mozart, Gluck and, in an anguished Dido’s Lament, Purcell. The African Cuban Punto de habanera shows her in playful mood.  Fiona Maddocks
