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 missed the first piece; the second, and most exciting, was the exquisite piece by Revel for left hand. Such intricacies, exciting runs, surprising percussive moments i have never heard before. the Gershwin seemed kind of like a pat piece the orchestra has done a million times - maybe because I've heard it so many times, but it didn't have the excitement it should have. By the end of he last piece I felt a little beat up. I think it should have been the penultimate piece, with Gershwin finishing.
