Sandrine Piau - Si j'ai aimé - Opera Now
Piau has chosen songs with orchestra, from Berlioz to Massenet, with some lesser known composers in-between, such as Godard, Bordes and Dubois. The programme embraces the themes of Souvenir and Désir et Séduction and Piau’s soprano wafts, cajoles and caresses the phrases with a great variety of colours, from the fizz of champagne to a full-bodied red. She makes it all sound easy and has the art of seeming natural and spontaneous. Julien Chauvin conducts with an equally delicate touch.
