Review of Marie-Nicole Lemieux published on 19 August 2023
Marie-Nicole Lemieux, contralto
Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo
Kazuki Yamada, conductor
The Canadian contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux joins the Orchestra Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo and its Artistic and Music Director Kazuki Yamada, to present her interpretation of the 'traditional' recorded pairing of two French song cycles: Berlioz's Les Nuits d'été and Ravel's Shéhérazade. Lemieux complements these with the less frequently recorded Mélodies Persanes (Persian Songs) from Saint-Saëns, settings of poems by Armand Renaud.
