"A beautiful rich tone. A stunning performance with exceptional stage presence."

The Sunday Times

Malta

"Sophia Grech's programme was clearly constructed and she has a special gift for singing Spanish songs which showed her agility, tonal flexibility, good breath control and graceful eloquence. Her pure lines and gracious restraint did justice to the arias of Massenet. Sophia also has a captivating smile which helps her communicate so easily with her audience."

'Mal -Kant-Tal-Bahar'

"Sophia Grech's voice is mellow and expressive, anyone not familiar with the Maltese language will get a good sense of it because she enunciates the words very clearly. The song 'Talba', is a prayer and the hymn of praise to God, which Grech renders to perfection. The next song 'Min Qatt Ma Ra' has a gentle contemplative, with a sad undertone that Grech captures exceedingly well."

Aria Magazine

Spain

                          

"Mezzo-soprano Sophia Grech gave a dramatic interpretation of the Rossini arias, this was a truly inspiring performance."

The Times - Culture

"Grech's Spanish recital began with Rodrigo's 'Con que la lavare' which established a certain kind of mastery this singer has of this form and continued with the gentle lullaby 'Dormir a un negrito' by Xavier Montsalvatge. Ms Grech then gave a fine interpretation of three Falla songs, here her singing was a model of musicality and grace characterised by a wide dynamic range, while never compromising beauty and purity of line, she conjured up deep expression and feeling."  

Oxford Times 

                         

"Sophia Grech produced a memorable account of 'Tecum principium' in Vivaldi's 'Dixit Dominus'."

Europa Sur

Spain

                      

"Sophia Grech brought warmth to the character 'Cherubino', her performance was sympathetic and colourful."
