After an album of French songs that earned her a Gramophone Award in 2016, Véronique Gens presents her new recital, this time with orchestra, which gives her an opportunity to display the maturity of her “Falcon” soprano. The Falcon is the central tessitura typical of French Romantic opera, which takes its name from Cornelie Falcon, who created the works of Meyerbeer and Halévy staged in the 1830s.

Gens pays tribute here to opera-comique, oratorio and the cantata for the Prix de Rome, as well as 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-Saëns, Halévy, and Février. A nod to Wagner and his Tannhäuser – in its French translation of the 1860s – completes this program conducted by one of the leading specialists in French music, Hervé Niquet.
