Natalie Dessay is one of the world's most renowned sopranos, performing at the world's premier opera houses for more than two decades until her retirement from the operatic stage in 2013. A six time winner of the Victoires de la Musique, France's premier annual music awards, she also won a Laurence Olivier Award in 2008 for her work on the London stage. A brilliant and passionate singer, Dessay is known for her interpretations of German lieder and French songs, which she'll perform at Davies Symphony Hall accompanied by pianist Phillipe Cassard. The evening's program features music by Clara Schumann, Brahms and Poulenc, as well as Richard Strauss, Duparc, Fauré, and Debussy. Learn More

I went to 4 performances this weekend, all different in genres, but can I get an amen from anyone who saw/heard this performance? I have to admit I am a classical singer and love Schubert and have worked on this song cycle. They did such an amazing job. My husband and I had tears in our eyes at the end and they got 4 standing ovations. This was true artistry of the highest form and I was engaged from the first note until the last. Lieder is feeling like a lost art from in this country. It is incredibly challenging for the pianist/singer to engage an audience for an evening of song. Each song is like a mini-opera, telling a full tale in a few moments and telling several in an evening. I applaud the SF symphony for bringing this here. It's hard to get an large audience for this type of work, but it shouldn't be and I hope lieder won't become a lost art.
