Reviews & Press

Salzburg Festival - Verdi - Luisa Miller - Federica

Von edlem Glanz und gesanglichem Adel war Yulia Matochkinas Federica, die Herzogin von Ostheim

Yulia Matochkina als Gräfin Frederica ließ mit einer wunderbaren Mezzostimme aufhorchen.

- Marco Stücklin , Das Opernmagazin

Read this article

Yulia Matochkina’s imposing Frederica brought the ideal mélange of metal and velvet in her timbre, authentically Italianate in style, and in fact slightly reminiscent of the young Fiorenza Cossotto - which is a compliment indeed.

Philharmonie de Paris - Wagner - Parsifal - Kundry

Exceptionnelle Kundry de Yulia Matochkina avec Gergiev à Paris.  La distribution vocale est (...) irréprochable, dominée par l’exceptionnelle prestation de Yulia Matochkina dans le rôle de Kundry. Tantôt guerrière, séductrice ou mystique, le timbre est rond, l’émission puissante sans vibrato, les aigus dardés, les graves abyssaux.  

- Patrice Imbaud , ResMusica

Teatro dell'Opera di Roma - Tchaikovsky - Eugene Onegin - Olga

ottima anche la prestazione nei panni di Olga della connazionale Yulia Matochkina, autentica voce di contralto dalle note gravi potenti e tornite, gradevoli da ascoltare

- Michelangelo Pecoraro , Operaclick

Münchener Philharmoniker - Wagner - Tristan und Isolde - Brangäne

Yulia Matochkina sang eine Brangäne von stimmschöner Eindringlichkeit und Poesie. Auf ihre sonore Tiefe schloss sich eine prächtige Mittellage an, die in eine leuchtende, glühende und ungemein klangschöne Höhe gipfelte.

- Michael Stange , ioco.de
