Deborah Voigt recordings / discography
In 2005, Deborah Voigt released her second solo CD for EMI Classics, All My Heart (with pianist Brian Zeger), earning wide acclaim. A critic for the Washington Post praised the “discerning eye” behind the adventurous choice of repertoire, “performed by a voice outstanding not only for tone and power but for interpretive subtlety and emotional nuance.” Ms. Voigt’s first EMI Classics solo CD, Obsessions, presents scenes and arias from operas by Wagner and Strauss. Released in April 2004, the Billboard top-five bestseller earned superlative comments like this one in Gramophone: “The arias highlight Voigt’s extraordinary ability to soar effortlessly and luminously above the orchestra with her trademark rich, lustrous, never hard or brittle voice.” Her recording of Strauss’s Egyptian Helen was also a Billboard bestseller, and named one of the Best CDs of 2003 by Opera News. A live recording of the 2003 Vienna State Opera Tristan und Isolde in which Voigt made her headlining role debut was released by Deutsche Grammophon.
