Si j'ai aimé - Sandrine Piau
DescriptionAfter a first recital at ALPHA with Susan Manoff, Chimères (Alpha 397), which won all the votes (Diapason d'Or de l'année, Choc de l'année, Gramophone Editor's Choice), Sandrine Piau signs a recital with orchestra that celebrates French melody as she moves from the private salon to the concert hall. Conceived in partnership with the Palazzetto Bru Zane, this programme evokes expectation, desire, pleasure, remembrance, in short the meanders of the romantic heroine's love... with texts by the poets Hugo, Lamartine, Gautier, Verlaine, Sandrine Piau has chosen melodies by Saint-Saëns (L'attente, Papillons), Massenet (Extase, Aimons-nous...), Vierne, as well as rare Dubois, Guilmant, Bordes... Julien Chauvin and his ensemble on ancient instruments combine these melodies with orchestral pieces (Pavane from La belle au bois dormant by Ma Mère L'Oye by Ravel or Danse profane for harp and orchestra by Debussy). The disc also features excerpts from Berlioz's Nuits d'Eté and concludes with the famous Plaisir d'Amour by Martini.
