Coloratura baritone Emiliano Géant is a Venezuelan opera singer, pianist and recording artist who specializes in the vocal repertoire that expands between the baroque era, and the early romantic period, with fleeting , yet profound excursions to more contemporary composers like Gabriel Fauré and Manuel De Falla.
His musical journey began in Caracas at the age of 12 as a pianist where he studied complementary courses at the Juan José Landaeta conservatory. He was a student of Gabriela Montero in Montreal, and attended McGill University as part of the opera performance program under Winston Purdy. After winning a scholarship from the government of Venezuela he completed a Masters degree in opera performance at London’s Royal College of Music.
He has performed the roles of Mozart’s Figaro and Don Giovanni, Donizetti’s Belcore, Pergolesi’s Uberto, Menotti’s Ben, and Bizet’s Escamillo among others. He sang the solos of Händel’s Messiah with L’Arte del Mondo in Halle’s Händel Festspiele in Germany in 2010.
His recent work as a recording artist began with his first album “Händel Insólito”, a full solo recital dedicated to bravura arias accompanied by harpsichord released in 2013. His second, and most recent project is called ‘Arie antiche’ where he performs both the vocal and piano parts recorded in studio and mastered by Erick Barragán, released in November 2015.
