Juan Diego Florez

Adam: Mes amis, écoutez l'histoire (from Le Postillon de Lonjumeau) Berlioz: O blonde Cérès (from Les Troyens) Bizet: Elle est là...À la voix d'un amant fidèle (from La jolie fille de Perth) Boieldieu: Oh, quel plasir d'etre soldat! (from La Dame blanche) Viens, gentille dame (from La Dame blanche) Delibes: Prendre le dessin d'un bijou…Fantaisie, ô divin mensonge (from Lakmé) Donizetti: Un ange, une femme inconnue (from La Favorite) Gounod: L'amour, l'amour... Ah, lève-toi soleil (from Roméo et Juliette) Massenet: O Nature, pleine de grace (from Werther) Toute mon âme - Pourquoi me réveiller (from Werther) Offenbach: Le jugement de Pâris - Au Mont Ida (from La Belle Hélène) Thomas, Ambroise: Oui, je veux par le monde (from Mignon)

Marking a departure for the Peruvian bel canto superstar, this new recording offers a personal survey of the French operatic repertoire from Donizetti to the romantic outpourings of Gounod and Massenet, including Massenet’s ‘Pourquoi me Reveiller’ from Werther. This is a disc that not only plays to Flórez’s strengths – virtuosic and high-lying – but also shows a new side to the popular singer, featuring repertoire which he has rarely sung on stage The first solo album in four years by one of the classical world’s biggest stars reveals a voice which has become richer, rounder and more mellow; the choice of repertoire draws further new colours from this ever-stylish tenor.
