GENUIN couldn’t have done better than start its new series – showcasing winners of the ARD International Music Competition – with splendid soprano Emalie Savoy. Her warm voice literally envelops the audience, carrying them off to the distant lands of Ravel’s Shéhérazade and Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta, and back to the bygone era evoked by Samuel Barber in his Hermit Songs. This music is all about solitude, about focusing on what is essential in life. And the American soprano conveys this superbly in every measure. We almost wish we were in Barber’s hermitage, undisturbed by the outside world, so we could savor this CD over and over again…

Nominated for the 2016 German Record Critics' Award

MusicWeb International
„If this is Emalie Savoy’s debut recording–which I suppose it is–it is indeed a spectacular debut in every respect.“
Review on the MusicWeb International by Göran Forsling, November 2016

Opera News
"This CD has a varied, well-chosen program that allows Savoy to showcase her rich, versatile soprano. Her sound is gleaming and full-bodied, accompanied by excellent musicianship and superb phrasing."
