Russian soprano Aida Garifullina has signed an exclusive recording contract with Decca Classics. Her debut, which will feature music by Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov alongside folk songs, will be recorded in Vienna and released in August. 

Garifullina was born in 1987 in Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan, and came to international attention by winning the Operalia competition in 2013. Prior to that success, she studied singing firstly with her mother, then with Siegfried Jerusalem in Nuremberg and Claudia Visca in Vienna.

Speaking about her new exclusive contract with Decca, Garifullina said, 'It is a huge honour for me to join this incredible family of great artists and to share with you the truly beautiful music of my home.'

The Managing Director of Decca Classics, Paul Moseley, said, 'Aida radiates star quality and has a uniquely distinctive voice, immediately recognisable for its agility, emotive power and Eastern promise.'
