Natalie Dessay Carnegie Hall 12 Mars 2014

Person Object ( [id_person] => 8872 [firstname] => Natalie [lastname] => Dessay [function] => Soprano [nationality] => French [birth_date] => 1965-04-19 [birth_place] => Lyon [agent] => [short_description] => [description] =>

Even if she says it is not just the high C in life, she first wowed the opera world with the highest notes. But this great artist also has exceptional gifts as an actress.

[extra_header] =>

Although she definitely gave up performing in operas, the lyric career of Natalie Dessay continues to the delight of all. She now gives song recitals in which her acting talent continues to marvel and it is not unusual to find her on stage defending musicals where she continues to shine. The great singer who was initially a born actress was blessed with a light soprano voice. Her incredibly stratospheric voice stunned crowds and she could just as well be confined to the same roles as maid or eternal young girls during her entire career. This goes without mentioning a strong character and a slight hiccup in her career (nodules on the vocal cords), which resulted in a first great turning point for Natalie Dessay. Back on stage after months of silence, the soprano decided to tackle heavier roles like the bel canto heroines or the Traviata she dreamed to embody. But the temptation of pure theater is too strong and Natalie Dessay permits herself the incredible luxury to say goodbye to the constraints of opera productions. Today, her appearances are extremely anticipated, you need to buy your tickets early!

Philippe Cassard has established an international reputation as concerto soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician since giving a joint recital with Christa Ludwig in Paris in 1985. The same year, he was finalist at the Clara Haskil Piano Competition; three years later, he won first prize at the Dublin International Piano Competition.

Mr. Cassard has performed as soloist with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Orchestre National de France, and many more.

Mr. Cassard's performance of the complete piano works of Debussy (four recitals in a single day)-presented in London (Wigmore Hall), Dublin, Paris, Lisbon, Sydney, Singapore, and Tokyo-received extremely enthusiastic press and media coverage. Released by Decca, the collection was awarded the Grand Prix du Disque in 1994.

His recording of Schumann's Humoreske and Fantasiestücke was named Editor's Choice by Gramophone. Mr. Cassard's other releases (Schubert's Impromptus and Brahms's Klavierstücke, Op. 116-119) have been received very warmly. His recent Schubert recording (including the Piano Sonata in
A Major, D. 959, and four-hands piano music) with Swiss pianist Cédric Pescia for La Dolce Volta was awarded Classica's 2014 Choc de l'année.

Mr. Cassard served as artistic director of the Nuits Romantiques du Lac du Bourget festival from 1999 to 2008. Since 2005, he has presented more than 400 live programs dedicated to piano interpretation on France Musique radio. He has written an essay on Schubert, and a book on cinema and music.
