The excellent young mezzo-soprano Yajie Zhang, who recently joined the Opera Studio of the Bavarian State Opera (...) has a strikingly attractive voice — smooth, rounded, ebony-coloured.
Abendzeitung München, Michael Bastian Weifl, 11/09/2020
Yajie Zhang's personality and her [...] richly facetted mezzo-soprano were captivating from the very beginning.
RBB Kultur, Clemens Goldberg, 15/01/2020
At the close of the nearly two-hour-long programme, the Shanghai-born mezzo-soprano Yajie Zhang gave life to songs by Schumann, Debussy and Brahms with such a range and depth of expression it was hard to believe she was raised in an entirely different culture and only came into contact with the German language in the past four years.
Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung, Christop Wagner, 26/03/2019
Yajie Zhang, who performed Hope and Music, brought a beautiful mezzo voice with clean coloratura line. […] The voice is something to look out for.
Operawire, Francisco Salazar, 22/10/2018
Anyone who witnessed the way the extraordinarily voiced (and only 23-years-old) Yaije Zhang roused not just the audience but also the seasoned Brigitte Fassbaender, saw her render the future of singing a little less fraught.
