Emily D’Angelo signs exclusive agreement with Deustche Grammophon
Emily D’Angelo has signed an exclusive agreement with Deutsche Grammophon.
The 26-year-old Italian-Canadian mezzo-soprano is well known as a recitalist and concert singer as well as for her roles in opera. His first album for DG Classics will be titled “enargeia” and will be released on October 8, 2021.
Her debut album will feature music by composers Missy Mazzoli, Sarah Kirkland Snider and Grammy Award-winning Hildur Guðnadóttir.
In a statement, D’Angelo said: “It is a huge honor to join Deutsche Grammophon at such an exciting time in the history of the label. In the spirit of artistic adventure and creativity, the team at DG supported my idea of exploring the old concept of enargeia – which permeates all the music on this album – and together we created a coherent listening experience from these extraordinary works. Above all, we share a passion for communicating in ways that move, inspire and connect people ”.
Meanwhile, Deutsche Grammophon President Dr Clemens Trautmann said: “Emily is an amazing singer. She set the opera world on fire at an age when many artists are just beginning their careers and has shown her virtuosity and versatility in so many genres. Her DG debut album provides a rich contemporary context for Hildegard’s music, which I’m sure will touch listeners to the core. We look forward to developing equally exciting projects with her in the future.
D’Angelo has performed at the Metropolitan Opera, the Canadian Opera Company, the Berlin Staatsoper, the Teatro alla Scala and the Bayerische Staatsoper, among others.
