THE French tenor of the hour in the intimacy of the recital to make the poetry of Chausson and Poulenc heard
Lieder and melodies by Schumann, Chausson et Poulenc
While the theatres were hopelessly closed, in March 2021, the broadcast of Faust from the Paris Opéra triggered (remote) cheers from an audience amazed by the outstanding Benjamin Bernheim in the title role. Adulated in his own country - he was named "Opera Artist of the Year" at the 2020 Victoires de la musique and saw his first album rewarded by a "Diapason d'or" and a "Choc" from Classica -, the French tenor is no less appreciated in the rest of Europe where he is in demand on the stages of the most prestigious venues. Decidedly, this "singer with a graceful tone" is on a roll! He invites us to discover his art in a more intimate way by offering a solo recital with a refined programme, centred on a French repertoire (Chausson and Poulenc) and also featuring Schumann's lieder. A favourite accompanist of today's great opera stars, having already shared the stage with Benjamin Bernheim, Carrie-Ann Matheson seems to be the ideal pianist to enable their performances to reach new heights.
