The Canadian mezzo Emily D’Angelo made her debut recording with all-new music on Deutsche Grammophon.



  • V.Lind says:

    She has an amazing voice. But she has already been discovered — she was a Lincoln Center “Emerging Artist” in 2020, and already had a Bernstein Award, among others. And a pretty healthy performance career well under way — including a number of recordings, although this is the first solo one. (BTW, you have the name of the album wrong in the linked review: it is Enargeia).

  • PS says:

    I like her voice. I’m not sure I like where the album brings me, but at least it does bring me somewhere.

  • Mervon says:

    Yannick, Pieczonka, Radvanovsky, Ehnes, Lisiecki, Goodyear, Lortie, Charles Richard Hamelin, Marc Andre Hamelin, Wallis Giunta and, now, Emily D’Angelo and Bruce Liu… the Canadian take over of classical music is real.

  • Radnor says:

    Mervon… How about Janina Fialkowska too

    • V.Lind says:

      And John MacMaster, come to think of it. There are quite a few other Canadians, perhaps not quite as celebrated but in regular work in Europe, the Americas and Australia.
