New Mexico Magazine says,

“if you’re not intimidated,

you’re not paying attention."

-- USA Today


“AnnaMaria Cardinalli is, without question, the most formidable contralto I have ever heard or had the pleasure to work with.”   

-- Maestro, Albin Konopka

   In reference to Gotterdammerung at Lincoln Center


“…a contralto of power, great musicality, and beautiful color, deserving of recognition for her immense talent."

 -- Winning Citation, Premio Concurso Internacional


 The Archbishop of Toledo, Spain enthused, "I have witnessed the masters perform where AnnaMaria just has.  And never before have I heard a performance of Recuerdos de la Alhambra more moving or more flawless." 


The Santa Fe, New Mexican wrote "...exuding romance and passion... when La Cantadora [AnnaMaria] sings, she has a deep, confident, warm burgundy contralto. Her lips... shape the sound as only the voice pouring from a throat blessed by Roman Cardinals could." 


  "Y, de paso, AnnaMaria sabe cantar... y lo hace muy bien."  -- La Opinion, Los Angeles 


"One young opera singer is emerging, however, who well might make Licia Albanese proud. Her name is AnnaMaria." 

-- Twin Circle, New York


"With a prodigious spirit that rivals Sor Juana's, AnnaMaria marvels audiences." 

-- The Sor Juana Festival, Chicago


The Albuquerque Journal describes "...a very deep voice that seems to mix Penitente and Gypsy styles."


AnnaMaria's performance at the 2013 Studio Incamminati Show hailed as that of a "world class contralto."
