Deutsche Grammophon has signed an exclusive record deal with 26-year-old Italian-Canadian mezzo-soprano Emily D’Angelo. A recitalist as well as an opera singer, D’Angelo’s debut album enargeia features the works of four female composers: medieval polymath Hildegard von Bingen, American composers Missy Mazzoli and Sarah Kirkland Snider, and the multi award-winning Icelandic film composer Hildur Guðnadóttir. She is a major advocate for new music, having previously given the world premiere of a song cycle by Ana Sokolović and perfomed new works by Unsuk Chin and Matthew Aucoin, among others.
After studying for a degree in music at the University of Toronto, D’Angelo joined the Candian Opera Company’s Ensemble Studio, before going on to become a member of the Metropolitan Opera Lindemann Young Artists Development Programme in 2017, making her Met debut in 2018.
D’Angelo’s debut album is set to be released on 8 October 2021.
