Mélodies francaises de Charles Gaounod, Jules Massnet, Louis Beydts and Maurice Delage. Darynn Zimmer, soprano; Gait Sirguey, piano; Soloisti New York conducted by Ransom Wilson
This imaginatively crafted recital of rarely heard French melodies places Zimmer in the forefront of emerging young American sopranos.
This collection of lesser known French art songs of the fin-de-siecle era presents the startlingly pure voice of Darynn Zimmer within piano and chamber orchestra settings. Poems of love, of nature, of despair, celebration and whimsy. This recital was created to evoke a world that had not yet fully become modern.
