Album Summary

>Poulenc, Francis : Dialogues des Carmélites, opera, FP 159
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

More than a magnificent performance of Poulenc's gripping and deeply moving masterwork, this recording is a document of the singers and conductor who, at the Paris Operetta in 1957, gave the French premiere of Dialogues des Carmélites. The pivotal role of Blanche was written for Denise Duval, the composer's favoured soprano, while Régine Crespin (Madame Lidoine) and Rita Gorr (Mère Marie) stand as two of the 20th century's towering interpreters of French opera. from The Home of Opera series
