Recital Véronique Gens
Mélodies françaises

An irreplaceable Mozartian, and brilliant interpreter of the neglected French lyric repertoire from the late 19th century that she defends with such passionate zeal, Véronique Gens cultivates the art of mélodie like a secret garden she adores sharing in complete intimacy with the public. It is to one of these precious moments of discovery and sensitive complicity that she invites us, in the company of the pianist Susan Manoff. The delicate bouquet that she has composed offers rare blossoms from the age of French mélodie, when the latter offered the quintessence of a delicate art of finely chiselled emotions, and a way of life in which art reigned throughout the great salons among dandies and artists, for an evening of perfumed scents and sounds as penetrating as they are captivating.
