Notes & Reviews:

This special project features the finest opera arias recorded by Canadian contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux for Naive, ranging from Vivaldi, Handel and Mozart to Saint-Saens, Massenet and Berlioz. It gathers tracks from six recordings released between 2003 and 2012, resulting from collaborations with some of the finest orchestras of the time: Il Complesso Barocco, Ensemble Matheus, Les Violons du Roy, Orchestre National de France.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The second release, by contrast, is devoted to a single singer. It is surprising to find how much of Lemieux Naive has on tap. There are 16 selections. Again a great deal of Handel and Vivaldi, some Gluck and Mozart. Part of Dido's death scene from Berlioz's Troyens, the big aria from Saint-Saens's Samson, another biggie from Massenet's Herodiade and a real knockout of an Offenbach track. I have long admired Lemieux's honest and robust contralto sound.
