Véronique Gens - Chausson: Poème de l'amour et de la mer & Symphonie, Op. 20 - Opera Now
Like the best performers of song, she sings in a straightforward manner, no with pecking, swooping or breathiness. Her diction is crisp and allow us to enjoy the poetry of Maurice Bouchor. A gem of simplicity and elegance. Gens is aided by Alexandre Bloch’s conducting, which is well-paced and never over-indulgent, yet still seductive.
