Notes & Reviews:

On the concert platform and on disc, Anne-Catherine Gillet radiates spontaneity, luminosity and enthusiasm in a way that is more than communicative. This outstanding recording of three masterpieces from the vocal repertoire provides an ideal opportunity to verify that. Listening, you will be charmed by the apparent facility, evidence and lightness of her phrasing. Anne-Catherine Gillet literally charms us with her fruity timbre, and it is impossible to remain impervious to the beauty of this new voice, accompanied with brio by the Liège Royal Philharmonic, conducted by one of the most prominent maestros of the lyric world, Paul Daniel. A moment of pure emotion, not to be missed on any account.
