Product Notes

'SO Romantique!' illustrates the 'profoundly sentimental' side of French opera from the 1830s to the 1900s, which gradually came to be judged overwrought and was condemned to partial oblivion. 'I am convinced that this is because the principals of interpretation were lost', says the tenor Cyrille Dubois. 'I have therefore put together this programme, which gives pride of place to rarities while highlighting the theatrical character and the use of registers so emblematic of the French ténor de grâce, in the hope of restoring this precious French heritage to it's former glory.' The sleuthing skills of the Palazzetto Bru Zane have assembled these treasures by Bizet, Gounod, Saint-Saëns, Auber, Halévy, Donizetti, Thomas and Delibes, the less well-known Godard, Dubois and Silver, and the virtually unknown Luce-Varlet and Clapisson. With the Orchestre National de Lille conducted by Pierre Dumoussaud, the French tenor deploys the full range of his artistry, the impressive high notes, the luminous tone and the graceful phrasing that is 'so Cyrille'!
