Emőke Baráth Signs Exclusive Contract With Erato

By Francisco Salazar

Emőke Baráth has signed an exclusive contract with Erato.

The Hungarian soprano is set to release her first solo project early next season and will include music from the Venetian Baroque era including Barbara Strozzi, Francesco Cavalli, and Antonio Cesti. The album will see her reunited with “Il Pomo d’Oro,” conducted by harpsichordist Francesco Corti.

Baráth is no stranger to working with Erato as she has sung in a complete recording of Handel’s “Partenope” and on the album “La Storia di Orfeo” with Philippe Jaroussky. She can also be heard on the recently released recording of Gluck’s opera “Orfeo ed Euridice.”

In a press statement the soprano noted, “I’m enormously grateful to Warner for this amazing opportunity – what more could a musician wish for? I feel we can create something special together with which I can stay true to myself and show the deep and spiritual connection I have with singing. My first solo album will be my fourth collaboration with Warner Classics & Erato and they have been wonderful musical experiences in the most supportive environment I can imagine. I’m really thankful and excited to start working together!”
