About

Anima Rara, the debut recital album from Ermonela Jaho, explores music championed by Rosina Storchio, one of the most charismatic lyric sopranos of the verismo era. Jaho sings arias from operas including Puccini’s Madama Butterfly, Leoncavallo’s La bohème, Giordano’s Siberia, Mascagni’s Lodoletta and Verdi’s La traviata, accompanied by the  Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana led by young Italian conductor Andrea Battistoni. Known for performances of searing intensity and emotional truth, Jaho has been described as ‘the world’s most acclaimed soprano’ (The Economist) and ‘one of the great verismo interpreters’ (The Guardian).

“It’s easy to appreciate something well-established and proven before the public, but it requires artistic vision to ask an audience to take a new look at a work of art that has been lost in the mists of time. This is Opera Rara’s vision, and it is one I passionately share. The repertoire we’ve recorded here is diverse, but what brings it together is the emotional truth, the ‘soul’ that we find in the music.”
– Ermonela Jaho

“Musicologist Rindom refers to Storchio’s superb technique, nuanced acting and sheer expressive range, words that apply no less equally to Ms. Jaho…. She has the leading female roles in bel canto and verismo nailed down.” – Leslie Jones, Quaterly Review

“Jaho’s sound is by turns light and transparent, or luxuriously full, and it builds to huge climaxes when the music demands. What she does with a 12-minute mad scene from Mascagni’s rarely performed Lodoletta has shattering force. An astonishing debut. […] A night to remember” – Michael Church, The Independent

“Unsparing veracity […] The Albanian soprano's remarkable ability to get inside the mind of a character made this recital a very special occasion […] A most distinguished recital, wonderfully done” – Tim Ashley, The Guardian

“An innate sense of pacing and dramatic timing in the Albanian soprano's recital […] Jaho genuinely excels, bringing astonishing intensity to the expression of extreme grief […] She brought the opera fans to ecstasy”
– Sebastian Scotney, The Arts Desk

“[…] shimmering soprano and sophisticated artistry” – Francis Muzzu, Opera Now
