Musical Moments: Pumeza Matshikiza & James Baillieu in recital

South African lyric soprano Pumeza Matshikiza gives a mesmerising recital in Berlin as part of DG’s “Musical Moments” series. Accompanied by renowned pianist James Baillieu, she presents a rich and varied programme of songs and arias. The beautiful warmth and glorious tone of her voice shine through in everything from Reynaldo Hahn’s musical portraits of Venice, four sophisticated French art songs by Gabriel Fauré and Fernando Obradors’ settings of seven traditional Spanish songs to virtuoso arias from Madama Butterfly, Tosca and Rusalka. And be sure to stay tuned for a very special South African send-off…
