Notes and Editorial Reviews

In Romantique, Elina Garanca makes a smashing return to the studio and puts her imprint upon the big Romantic repertory, brilliantly portraying such different heroines as Tchaikovsky’s Joan of Arc (The Maid of Orléans), Gounod’s Sapho and Saint-Saëns’ Dalila.

Elina Garanca’s mezzo-soprano is velvet; she is a stunning figure on stage; her formidable technique encompasses repertoire from Mozart and bel canto to dramatic roles and contemporary music.

Conductor Yves Abel’s penchant for the voice and skill at leading an orchestra draws beautiful sound and potent drama from the Filarmonica del Teatro Comunale di Bologna. Elina Garanca’s rapport with this orchestra is deeper than ever.

 Beautiful Recortding May 22, 2013 By Ralph Holt (San Rafael, CA) See All My Reviews "Ms Garanca is a wonderful singer and she is fortunate to work with a wonderful conductor and orchestra. This is recording that always seems fresh when I play it." Report Abuse
 Lovely Mezzo Suprano Voice February 12, 2013 By Carl P Nordmark (Northfield, NH) See All My Reviews "I subscribe to the classical music magazine "Listen". Their winter issue had a cover with Elina's picture on it and a long article and interview with her. I was captivated with her in-depth knowledge of music. Her mezzo suprano voice is as lovely as she is. I can see why she is in such demand in opera companies throughout the world. You will really enjoy listening to her sing. Philip" Report Abuse
