NATALIE DESSAY Music Poster * La FILLE & ARIAS * 14" x 22" Rare 2008 Mint New Condition. Large Size measures 14" inches wide by 22" inches high. Original Poster for Natalie Dessay's 2008 album release of " Airs D' Operas Italiens ( Italian Opera Arias ) : Concerto Koln / Evelino Pido due for release May 2008. Natalie Dessay reigns as one of the premier coloratura sopranos of the current era. Her incredible high notes (listen to her in "Fruhlingstimmen," the Strauss waltz; that final note must be G or possible even A above high C ( ? ) are both awe inspiring and angelic. The sampling of cuts from this album is simply astounding. "E strano!. . .Sempre libera." This segment from Verdi's "La Traviata" is a wonderful work. She begins this nicely, in "E strano!," an aria sung not only well , but also affectingly ( a great singing actress as well ). In her performance in the cabaletta, "Sempre libera" she seems in amazing command of this piece, and her singing reaches for , and achieves , soaring heights. Where Dessay succeeds in this programme of coloratura showpieces is in painting convincing character portraits. Dessay's Gilda is a naïve innocent, exploring her sexuality for the first time, the final offstage trill seeming both a moment of sublime ecstasy and a warning of future sorrow, erupting unconsciously from the girl's throat. Dessay's Lucia is a broken and tormented girl, ironically learning how to express herself as she descends further into madness , the music's virtuosity contorted into a depiction of tragic self-confidence. Quite simply this is another amazing album showcasing the incredible range of this remarkable french soprano.
