Notes & Reviews:

Produced by the Bru-Zane Foundation, whose mission is to aid in the rediscovery of unjustly neglected French music, 1780 to 1920. An album of Romantic French cantatas by Cherubini, Heand Boisselot in the company of an exceptional guide, mezzo-soprano Karine Deshayes, Opera Fuoco and its conductor, David Stern. The French Cantata, a Baroque-era presence, was restored to favor in the 19th century as an alternative to the Italian stage, then generally perceived in France as being overly exuberant.

Expedition Audio Recommended
The rich and silvery tone of mezzo-soprano Karine Deshayes' voice suites this repertoire ideally and conductor David Stern leads his orchestra in vigorous and impeccably played performances. Anyone who appreciates the vocal music of Berlioz, or operas coming from the time of Meyerbeer and Weber should not delay in getting a copy of this exceptional album. read more
