Soprano Natalie Dessay guides us through a gallery of unforgettable women, from composers Alma Mahler, Clara Schumann and Fanny Hensel-Mendelssohn to great operatic heroines.

Possessing one of the most beguiling soprano voices ever to grace the world’s operatic stages, Natalie Dessay has forged a career characterised by its variety and integrity. Now channelling her energies into concert performances, Dessay and regular collaborator Philippe Cassard present a selection of exquisite art songs and arias that make full use of Dessay’s expressive range.

Alongside the ardent melodies and rich harmonies of songs by Fanny Hensel-Mendelssohn and Clara Schumann, and the subtle contours of Alma Mahler’s music, Dessay portrays some of the most complex and well-drawn women in opera. By turns manipulated, spurned or driven to despair, this is a perfect cast of characters to demonstrate Dessay’s communicative genius.
