Bookmark and Share

Piotr Beczała has recorded a collection of favorite operatic arias that lie at the core of his repertoire, all connected to France or Paris. He prepared for the task by listening to old recordings and becoming familiar with how earlier singers approached the roles. This recital of French repertoire includes music by Massenet, Berlioz, Verdi, Boieldieu, Donizetti, Gounod and Bizet. Beczała is joined on the album by German soprano Diana Damrau.

"Donizetti: La Favorite: Ange si pur (3:49)" & the Gounod: Roméo et Juliette: L'amour, l'amour!…Ah! lève-toi, soleil! (4:41)
