Véronique Gens - Nuits - MusicWeb International - ROTY - MC
My Record of the Year is a pretty straight forward choice. Standing out with her latest recital album 'Nuits' (Nights') is soprano Veronique Gens. Undoubtedly a voice I never tire of hearing, Gens revels in this collection of enchanting French melodies. With a theme of exploring the different ways in which poets have described nightfall and dreams this enticing programme focuses on melodies with piano quartet accompaniment. In her prime and singing in her native language Gens demonstrates glorious form in such beguiling repertoire.
