Now Available: Sol y Vida

Deutsche Grammophon has just released Elīna Garanča’s newest album: Sol y Vida, a celebration of love and the long hot days of summer. A very personal selection of music from the Latvian mezzo, the album’s repertoire ranges from well-known Italian love songs to Spanish and Latin American favorites.

“For me, these many-colored songs are a perfect reflection of the highly emotional way of life in the South – there’s that almost crazy kind of love, but also a deeply felt sentimentality.” – Elīna Garanča

This album marks Elīna’s first recording of entirely non-core-classical repertoire, with a colorful program featuring tango, Latin American folk music, and Italian love songs. Karel Mark Chichon conducts the Orquesta Filarmónica de Gran Canaria.
