Sony Classical International announces the exclusive signing of American soprano, Rachel Willis-Sørensen with her self-titled debut album of opera arias and scenes, coming out April 8, 2022. “Rachel” - available from today to pre-order - showcases the depth and variety of her incredible voice which leading French daily Le Monde cites as “without a doubt one of the most impressive voices in the opera world.” The album includes key works from Verdi, Mozart, Puccini, Dvorak and Lehár that reflect her stellar career performing on the world’s most prestigious opera stages.

Sony Classical President Per Hauber says: “Rachel's unique voice and outstanding stage presence are simply remarkable. During the recording sessions for Jonas Kaufmann’s Vienna album with the Vienna Philharmonic, she also enthusiastically excited us with her sheer incredible linguistic talent. We are now looking forward to releasing her first solo album and joining her on an exciting recording career”. Ms Willis-Sørensen added: “I have dreamed of recording an album since I knew such a thing existed. There are not words enough to share my thrill and honour of recording with this prestigious label some of the dearest music to my heart and sharing it with YOU!”.
