Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

After her triumphs in the world's greatest opera houses, Natalie Dessay extends beyond opera with a tribute to the legendary Michel Legrand who has scored some of the most famous musical soundtracks in history. This album that Dessay and Legrand have recorded together focuses on voice, piano, bass, and drums. It includes Legrand's Oscar-winners, a duet from Les Parapluies de Cherbourg - which brings Dessay together with her husband, the bass-baritone Laurent Naouri, the Lilac Fairy's song from Peau d'ane, and the sisters' sassy duet from Les Demoiselles de Rochefort, performed here by Dessay and fellow soprano Patricia Petitbon. Another special guest on the album is the distinguished harpist Catherine Michel, who is also Michel Legrand's wife.
