GENUIN supports ARD Music Competition

GENUIN classics is committed to promoting young and highly talented musicians. The label has already enjoyed a close collaboration with the German Music Council for nine years: as part of the Primavera Edition, prizewinners of the German Music Competition have the opportunity to release their debut CD with GENUIN classics. It has been a highly successful collaboration, as testified by the ECHO Klassik prize that will be awarded to saxophonist Asya Fatayeva this fall – already the second time, following tubist Andreas Martin Hofmeir, that a GENUIN artist’s Primavera Edition release will be honored with the ECHO Klassik Award.

Starting with this year, GENUIN now also supports the ARD Music Competition. In just a few weeks (September 2), the premiere CD of this new series will be released, featuring Emalie Savoy, who won first prize in Munich in 2015 in the voice category. Emalie Savoy touches her listeners throughout the world with the lyric beauty of her soprano voice and her dramatic passion.

Concert highlights of her career have included her debut as Kristina in Leoš Janáček’s The Makropoulos Case (cond. Jiří Bělohlávek), Mozart’s Cosě fan tutte (cond. Alan Gilbert), the title role in Gluck’s Armide (cond. Jane Glover) with the Met and Juilliard Ensemble, the Countess in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro, and Anne Sexton in Conrad Susa’s Transformations. She has also performed concerts with Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, the solo parts in Handel’s Messiah, Mendelssohn’s St. Paul and Elijah, Britten’s War Requiem with the Oratorio Society of New York (cond. Kent Tritle) at Carnegie Hall, Anne in Schubertstrasse 200 at the Salzburg Landestheater with the Mozarteumorchester Salzburg (Adrian Kelly), and Queen Isabella in Falla’s Atlántida with the New York Philharmonic.

Born in Schenectady, New York, Emalie Savoy graduated from the Metropolitan Opera’s Young Artist Development Program and earned her Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in voice at the Juilliard School.
