Juan Diego Florez: L'Amour
Massenet: Werther: Pourquoi me réveiller (3:05)
Offenbach: La Belle Hélène: Au mont Ida (3:51)
Juan Diego Flórez, tenor; Bologna Teatro Comunale Orch / Roberto Abbado
The first solo album in four years by one of opera’s biggest stars reveals a voice which has become richer, rounder and more mellow. The choice of repertoire draws further new colors from tenor Juan Diego Flórez. His new recording offers a survey of the French operatic repertoire from Donizetti to Gounod and Massenet. This is a disc that not only plays to Flórez’s strengths but also shows a new side to the singer, featuring repertoire which he has rarely sung on stage.
