“Visions”, New Album from Véronique Gens out Friday 9th June
After an album of French songs (Néère) that earned her a Gramophone Award in 2016, French soprano Véronique Gens releases her new album, Visions, Friday, 9th June on Alpha Classics. This new recital, performed and recorded with orchestra, puts the maturity of her “Falcon” soprano on full display.
Having uncovered several unknown operas from composers such as David, Godard, Saint-Saëns and Halévy while working with the Palazzetto Bru Zane – Centre de musique romantique française, the standout soprano has once again joined forces with Palazzetto Bru Zane to produce Visions, an album which pays tribute to these composers and their previously undiscovered oeuvre.
Since earning First Prize at the Conservatoire de Paris and debuting with Les Arts Florissants and William Christie in 1986, Véronique Gens quickly rose to the top of the baroque music sphere. Now one of the most renowned Mozart performers on the international scene, she regularly performs on the world’s most prestigious stages with internationally acclaimed orchestras: Covent Garden in London, Staatsoper in Vienna, the Paris Opéra, the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and the Boston Symphony Orchestra to name a few. Visions adds to an already prolific discography of over 80 recordings which has earned her several awards including a Diapason d’Or and a Gramophone Award.
