The album is a journey through music (Great American Song Book, Broadway & Jazz) and Edward Hopper’s art. The songs have been arranged by the most sought-after and best jazz arrangers including Baptiste Trotignon, Pierre Boussaguet, Patrice Caratini and Cyrille Lehn. Recorded with the Paris Mozart Orchestra and 2 Jazz Musicians, this is Natalie Dessay’s exciting first album release for Sony Classical. The first disc contains eleven songs from the Great American Song Book and the second: 8 compositions by Graciane Finzi (inspired by the Hopper paintings), texts by French poet Claude Esteban, recited by Natalie before Barber’s Adagio closes the album.
