Notes & Reviews:

In this personal selection of masterpieces, Elina Garanca balances familiar numbers and ensembles with little known treasures by Bellini, Donizetti and Rossini, riding vocal acrobatics and spun out melodies through an emotional spectrum to unforgettable effect. Her new disc, 'Bel Canto' has been a long time coming. Elina personally selected many of the pieces on this disc, carefully choosing which music would best suit her velvety mezzo-soprano voice. "There is so much absolutely gorgeous music from these composers that we don't know" she comments.

2009 release. Elina Garanca follows her exceptional debut splash, Aria Cantilena, with bel canto solos and ensembles featuring guest luminaries like Ildebrando d'Arcangelo. Flawless coloratura and a 'one-in-a-million' mezzo (The Independent) make this exciting young artist ideal for this repertoire. Balancing familiar numbers and ensembles with little known treasures by Bellini, Donizetti and Rossini, Elina rides bel canto's vocal acrobatics and spun out melodies through an emotional spectrum to unforgettable effect Universal
