[ ABC Eloquence / CD ]
Release Date: Tuesday 20 September 2005
This generously compiled CD brings together two great sopranos - Hildegard Behrens and Elly Ameling - in ravishing French music for the voice and orchestra. The entire Ameling / de Waart recording (Ravel, Duparc, Debussy) is coupled with the Berlioz cycle, the former making a welcome return to the catalogue after a long absence and showcasing the Dutch soprano in her absolute prime, vocally and interpretatively.
BERLIOZ: Les Nuits d'été
DUPARC: Chanson triste - L'Invitation au voyage
DEBUSSY: La demoiselle élue
