Berlioz's Les nuits d'été has received some outstanding recordings over the years, prime among them those by Regine Crespin and Victoria de los Angeles. Here's a new one by Véronique Gens that belongs in their rarefied category. That should come as no surprise to admirers of her terrific Handel and French song discs. She sings with a light but expressive soprano that's fetching in itself and flexible enough to darken tones and lend emotional weight to the texts where called for. Her diction is impeccable, and the orchestral support is first-rate. The remainder of the disc is as good. The long dramatic scene, La mort de Cléopatre, is stunningly sung and played, Gens projecting the plight of the dejected queen with great intensity and vocal beauty. The three orchestral songs sparkle in Gens's renditions. The final one, "Zaïde," with its castanets and vivacious singing, will force you to keep hitting the repeat button. An unqualified recommendation!

Measha Brueggergosman continues to amaze. She began her career in the right way, singing small parts with orchestral pieces, doing works few would touch such a William Bolcom's setting of William Blake's Songs of Innocence and of Experience, and recitals that included a sampling of the works she would later conquer. In this 2006 recording she reveals her affinity to the French repertoire, and in keeping with her fascination for interesting programming she her performs Hector Berlioz' 'Les nuits d'été' (with Yoav Talmi, Orchestre Symphonique de Québec) and follows that with arias from Jules Massenet's 'Le Cid', 'Herodiade, 'Manon', and 'Werther'. She glows throughout the Berlioz cycle with a voice of beautiful timbre and elegant enunciation of the French texts. She closes the program with a lovely rendering of the spiritual 'Goin' Up Yonder'.
