Pumeza Matshikiza (soprano)

Aarhus Symfonieorkester, Tobias Ringborg

Pumeza’s second album ARIAS is a collection of many of the great opera roles in which Pumeza has blossomed: Mimì in La Boheme; Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro; Liù in Turandot; Dido in Dido & Aeneas; Concepcion 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 Faure’s ‘Après un rêve’ and Reynaldo Hahn’s A 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Tebaldi in the 1970s and recorded here for the first time since then and an arrangement of the classic song ‘La Paloma’ originally made for Victoria de los Angeles.

“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!” Sunday Times, 8th 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.” The Guardian, 15th May 2016 ****

Nicole Car (soprano)

Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra, Andrea Molino

Nicole is one of the brightest stars on the international opera scene. In October 2015 she made a sensational debut at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden to unanimous critical acclaim, singing Micaëla in Carmen; in December 2015 she returned to Covent Garden in the lead role in Eugene Onegin opposite Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Nicole has been known to Australian audiences for several years through her major roles for Opera Australia; she has already won the 2013 Neue Stimmen competition (Germany) and received nominations in the International Opera Awards and Australia’s Helpmann Awards.

The Kiss surveys the arias that have made Nicole’s name: 19th-century gems, both well known and unjustly neglected, that showcase the outstanding beauty, unforced lyricism and compelling passion of her voice. At the heart of the disc stands the ‘Letter Scene’ from Eugene Onegin – Nicole’s performances of which have astounded audiences across the world. Her passion for Russian repertoire continues with music by Rimsky-Korsakov.

A gorgeous and rarely recorded lullaby by Smetana from the opera Hubička (The Kiss) gives the album its name, and the themes of intimacy and love that feature throughout the recording. From Rusalka asking the silver moon to shine on her beloved prince, so far away, to Amelia in Simon Boccanegra eagerly awaiting her lover’s arrival; from Servilia lamenting her fate, torn between love and duty, to Gounod’s Marguerite trembling with excitement as she sees herself in new-found jewels – this is an album of beguiling, passionate gems sung by one of the finest voices of today.

Inge Borkh (soprano) & Ljuba Welitsch (soprano)

These recordings of the voices of Inge Borkh and Ljuba Welitsch are very fine examples of the art of the dramatic soprano from the 1950s and early 1960s. Borkh acquired a considerable reputation as Aida, Tosca, Turandot, and Medea in Cherubini’s opera of the same name, as well as Leonora in Fidelio. On this anthology, bringing together her recital records for Decca, we are given two mixed recitals and one of three great operatic scenes (Beethoven, Strauss, Weber).

Bulgarian-born Ljuba Welitsch liked to sing and play the violin as a child and studied Philosophy at Sofia University she began to train her voice at the Sofia Conservatory and then in Vienna at the Music Academy. It was in Vienna that her performance as the Composer in Ariadne auf Naxos attracted the attention of Richard Strauss who suggested that she sing Salome. Her first Salome was in 1944 at a performance conducted by the composer himself to mark his 80th birthday. By the mid-1950s Welitsch had begun to switch to smaller roles and comic parts after having driven her voice mercilessly and undergoing a throat operation. Her only recital disc for Decca (and one of her very few studio recordings) was recorded in Vienna in 1950. By way of a ‘bonus’ we have Rudolf Sieczyński’s nostalgic song ‘Wien, Wien, nur du allein’ from Vienna, City of my Dreams, composed in 1913 and performed here in a 1960 recording of Die Fledermaus as part of a ‘gala’ featuring a host of famous singers at Prince Orlofsky’s ball. Welitsch had been coaxed out of retirement to take part in this bit of fun (which was not without precedent in Vienna) and her contribution is very moving.

Rita Streich (soprano)

Rita Streich, famed for her peerless coloratura, for her Queen of the Night and her performances of Olympia in Les contes d’Hoffmann and Blonde in Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Rita Streich, often dubbed a ‘singing nightingale’ also took time out from a busy career to record miniatures. Several LPs, combined over two (now deleted) Deutsche Grammophon ‘Originals’ are here combined into a 2CD set, showcasing the soprano in popular opera arias, waltz-songs, folk songs (English, American, Russian, Japanese and Yiddish) and lullabies. The waltzes stem from the melodic treasury of the Viennese Strauss dynasty – music of yearning, enchantment and nostalgia, all abetted by Streich’s joyous coloratura. The folk songs and lullabies were recorded in Munich and in Regensburg, in 1962 and 1964. Note-writer Bernhard Uske, describes the result as ‘a glorious carpet of flowers’.
