Emily D'angelo - Enargeia (180g)
Emily D'Angelo, Das Freie Orchester Berlin, Jarkko Riihimäki
The 26-year-old Canadian-Italian singer's debut album on Deutsche Grammophon combines pieces from the Middle Ages with works from the 21st century. Compositions by Hildegard von Bingen from the 12th century in new arrangements by American contemporary composers Missy Mazzoli and Sarah Kirkland Snider stand next to compositions by Icelandic Oscar winner (Chernobyl) Hildur Guðnadóttir. The hypnotic sound of electronic arrangements meets chamber music intimacy from the fascinating dark warm voice of Emily D'Angelo.
