A Breathe Of Fresh Air….

I listened to this cd intently and with a great deal of enjoyment. it is pleasure to hear a patricia petibon NOT be another bland, run of the mill singer, who merely sings words. she is reckless(creatively, in a positive sense),and sings with abandon.her overly dramatic style of singing may not be to everyone’s taste..but she is committed and much of her coloratura is her own..she has the necessary top notes, but also a very strong bottom range with everything in between she needs to summon up.the arias are all enjoyable..it’s nice to have the haydn arias and there are several from gluck’s armide,which is not often heard..she already has a french baroque album, and most recently an italian baroque cd…she is now only 40,so she should still have many productive years ahead of her..it will be interesting to see what she does next..also, interestingly,she is maried to the composer eric tanguy..
