Pumeza Matshikiza, 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Tebaldi in the 1970s and recorded here for the first time since then and an arrangement of the classic song ‘La Paloma' originally made for Victoria de los Angeles.
