Veronique Gens - Visions - Presto Classical

Immensely attractive music - I can think of no finer advocates than Gens and the Münchner Runfunkorchester under Hervé Niquet, who sound for all the world as if they’re playing period instruments thanks to the idiomatic handling of style and sonority on show. There’s a very particular something about Gens’s basic timbre which I’ve always found immensely engaging...and which is eminently suited to the task of bringing these febrile heroines to life.
