Notes & Reviews:

Sunday Times, 8th May 2016
The verismo arias - Mimi's entrance number; Ebben? Ne andro lontana, from La Wally; Suor Angelica's Senza mamma - reveal one of the most luscious sounds we've heard from a young soprano in years, and she sings words!

The Guardian, 15th May 2016
[Matshikiza] has versatility, range and huge personality. Her voice is rich without heaviness, capable of teasing lightness and flexibility, as the selection here demonstrates.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2016
You would have to be a wally not to be moved by [Matshikiza's] Wally, whose 'Ebben?...Ne andro lontana' is delivered with simplicity and sincerity (listen to the wistful frailty of 'O della madre mia casa gioconda'). Here, her natural ardour, the coppery sheen to her voice and its slightly covered top notes all come off well.

BBC Music Magazine, September 2016
Matshikiza's fresh, even, iridescent tone is ideally weighted for Puccini's Mimi and Li·... Rusalka's Song to the Moon is glorious... [and she delivers] a gravely beautiful 'When I am laid in earth'.
