Natalie Dessay de l'Op‚ra … la Chanson

Natalie Dessay De L'op‚Ra … La Chanson


French soprano Natalie Dessay has done one thing pretty much better than anyone else out there: dance around in the vocal stratosphere and keep a beautiful, blooming sound going. She has also been impressive indeed in seeming to put herself right in front of listeners in a quiet aria, and she's a fine, charismatic stage presence. All these attributes are present on this two-CD collection of Dessay tracks, which is further distinguished by several pages of photos, not of the singer herself, but of the albums from which the tracks are drawn. This is desirable: a collection of hits ideally ought to be a way into the artist's work, not a final step. The fan or the newcomer to Dessay will find a fair sampling of her specialties here: French opera, the Baroque, the bel canto repertory. The thing is, it's not exactly a greatest-hits album. De l'op?ra ? la chanson includes at the end a set of eight French chansons and popular songs from outside France. These seem to be intended to pave the way for Dessay's...
