URL Copied
The New York Times has said of mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča, “There are few voices as sheerly lovely as hers: a smooth, evenly produced instrument, rich but not heavy, with high notes that penetrate without blaring.” The soulful singer performs lushly Romantic songs by Brahms, Duparc, and Rachmaninoff for her return to Carnegie Hall.

Mezzo-soprano discusses Brahms, Deparc, and Rachmaninoff.

At a Glance

All of the composers featured on this afternoon’s program—Johannes Brahms, Henri Duparc, and Sergei Rachmaninoff—can be classified as Romantic songwriters, and yet their sensibilities were as different as the three languages they were setting: German, French, and Russian.

Brahms’s Romanticism was tempered by his innate love for Classical forms and restrictions. As a young man (and one who firmly embraced bachelorhood), he had adopted the personal motto “Frei aber froh” (“Free but happy”) as a riposte to his close friend violinist Joseph Joachim’s “Frei aber einsam” (“Free but lonely”). Nevertheless, as we listen to Brahms’s songs and their recurring themes of the sad, regretful outsider, it seems that Joachim’s motto might really have fitted his aching soul better.

Duparc’s Romanticism was the refined version of a cultivated Frenchman, reveling in the colors of language and music and how they could be subtly blended into a unity. He wrote only 17 songs, yet they are among the greatest achievements in this challenging art form.

Born decades after the other two, Rachmaninoff was, nevertheless, the most uninhibited Romantic of the three. His Russian soulfulness drove the passionate outpourings of his songs, as did his love for the female voice.


Elīna Garanča

Elīna Garanča has established herself as one of music's major stars through her performances at leading opera houses and with symphony orchestras around the world. She has captured critical and popular acclaim for her beautiful voice, intelligent musicianship, and compelling stage portrayals. She was born into a musical family in Riga, Latvia. After studying at the Latvian Academy of Music with her mother, she won the Mirjam Helin International Singing Competition in 1999 and was a finalist in the 2001 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition.

She began her professional career as a resident artist with the Meiningen Court Theatre, where she appeared in a number of leading roles, and also performed as a resident artist of Oper Frankfurt.

In 2005, Ms. Garanča became an exclusive artist with Deutsche Grammophon. Her first solo recording, Aria Cantilena, was released in March 2007, earning her the prestigious ECHO Klassik award for Singer of the Year in 2007. Her last two albums have also won ECHO Klassik awards: Romantique in 2012 and Meditation in 2015.

Her landmark 2015-2016 season included appearances at the ECHO Klassik awards ceremony; on the Moscow and St. Petersburg stages with Dmitri Hvorostovsky; opera productions at the Vienna State Opera, Paris Opera, and Deutsche Oper Berlin; and a role debut in a new production of Roberto Devereux at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

During the 2016-2017 season, Ms. Garanča returns to the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, Paris Opera, and Metropolitan Opera. On the concert stage, she sings Mahler songs with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel, and embarks on a major European tour to promote her new release on Deutsche Grammophon. She also makes her Mexican debut on a four-concert tour.

Highlights of recent seasons have included her critically acclaimed house debut in the title role of Bizet's Carmen at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. She reprised this role in a new production at the Metropolitan Opera, broadcast in more than 1,000 cinemas worldwide. Ms. Garanča was also named Musical America's 2010 Vocalist of the Year; also in 2010, she won the MIDEM Classical Award for Singer of the Year and was honored as the ECHO Klassik Female Singer of the Year. She has given numerous gala concerts and recitals in Europe and the US, including Verdi's Requiem at La Scala with Daniel Barenboim, Anja Harteros, Jonas Kaufmann, and René Pape.
