Concert / Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival / 2013

"A somewhat longer concert...featured the splendid rising baritone Matthew Worth in a performance of Schumann's song cycle 'Dichterliebe' ... Mr. Worth was simply superb, singing with exquisite sensitivity where needed but also growling strongly--depsite the protestations of the text--in 'Ich grolle nicht'. His voice and manner seemed ideally suited to the lieder format, although he is also making his way in opera."
James R. Oestreich, The New York Times


"Matthew Worth, superb baritone hero of Schumann's Dichterliebe the week before, now cycled his way through Mahler in a subtle, deeply felt account of the four Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen. Worth embodied that forsaken apprentice--a Mahler self-portrait of sorts--with consummate understanding and hair-raising intensity. It's a many timbre-d voice, as comfortable in the high tessitura of the closing verse as in the sustained legato that ends the first song. Keep an eye on this guy."
