This recording features famed French soprano coloratura, Elizabeth Vidal, who topped the French music charts in 2014 with a pop-classical album, La Cantadora.

It is a unique collection in that it focuses on works from French composers and composers from other regions living in France, who were born between 1810 and 1910.
From Félicien David (1810-1876) to Manuel Rosenthal (b. 1904), each of these artists had a common interest in the use of the light coloratura soprano voice.

As a notable example, Camille Saint-Saëns and Louis Beydts played at transforming these ethereal voices from springs into torrents and flowers into birds, to everyone’s great delight.

This extraordinary program presents unpublished or rare items including:

Saint-Saëns’s La Libellule, A Mélodie composed in 1894 for Sybil Sanderson, which had never been recorded; Manuel Rosenthal’s Trois Précieuses, of which this is the world première recording; Federico Longas’s Le Rossignol Et Lempereur, which had not been recorded or sung since its first performance in 1937 by Lily Pons and Louis Beydts’s Chansons Pour Les Oiseaux, last recorded in the 1960s by Janine Micheau.
