After an album of French songs that earned her a Gramophone Award in 2016, Veronique Gens presents her new recital, this time with orchestra, which gives her an opportunity to display the maturity of her ''Falcon'' soprano, the central tessitura typical of French Romantic opera, which takes its name from Cornelie Falcon, who created the works of Meyerbeer and Halevy staged in the 1830s. She pays tribute here to a number of composers whose unknown operas she was the first to reveal in projects mounted by the Palazzetto Bru Zane (which also coproduced the present recording), including David, Godard, Saint-Saens and Halevy, Godard, Fevrier), opera-comique, oratorio and the cantata for the Prix de Rome. A nod to Wagner and his Tannhauser - in its French translation of the 1860s - completes this programme conducted by a longstanding colleague of the soprano, one of the leading specialists in French m usic, Herve Niequet.
