For her first recital with orchestra album, young Franco-Danish soprano Elsa Dreisig had the idea of presenting five pairs of songs in which each part of the pair is ambiguously related to the other, like a mirror’s reflection. This process leads to striking juxtapositions of different musical styles, dramatic moments, historical periods and contrasting voices; classicism and romanticism complement each other, terror answers joy, and the result is a view of the feminine soul all its facets. The first pairing involves two mirrors: the one in which Marguerite from Gounod's Faust admires herself and Thaïs's mirror in Massenet's opera (Thaïs). There follows Puccini's vision of Manon Lescaut, and then Manon (sans Lescaut) as imagined by Massenet. Following this we have Juliette, this is a rather daring pairing of the largely-forgotten early romantic German composer Daniel Steibelt with Gounod's Juliette. Elsa Dreisig then moves onto the two famous Figaros, one from Rossini's Barber (Rosina) and the other from Mozart's Marriage, with the gentle tones of the Countess. Finally, and more daring still, we end with the Salome of the Hérodiade by Massenet, a tender young woman who is not after anyone's head; and then Strauss's Salome, with her sanguinary madness. Probably in order to avoid the temptation of comparisons with other recordings, our singer has opted for the 1907 French version – note that this work by Oscar Wilde was itself originally written in French. This is the most extraordinary selection that one could hope for in a first recording from any artist, all accompanied by the Montpelier Orchestra, conducted by Michael Schønwandt. © SM/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet
Morgen (“tomorrow” in German, but also “morning”, i.e. the dawn of a new day) is the title of this poetic musical journey imagined by Franco-Danish soprano Elsa Dreisig and Texan pianist Jonathan Ware, tackling three composers who at first glance seem quite stylistically different: Duparc, Strauss and Rachmaninov. This album precedes their tour of several European concert halls in early 2020, including a performance at London’s Wigmore Hall in February. In her first album Miroirs released in autumn 2018, Elsa Dreisig presented various pieces with strong female characters in order to “offer different ‘reflections’ on an operatic situation or character”. In this new album, it’s a more intimate side that she wants to unveil to the listener, with a choice of melodies inviting us to follow her on an introductory journey through the Vier letzte Lieder by Strauss: an adventure bringing us close to the many facets of the soul. For Jonathan Ware, this is his first recording of the piano version of Aux Étoiles, one of the only orchestral works composed by Henri Duparc, a low-key musician whose depressive personality darkened much of his life. Delicately scored by the composer, the work which is subtitled Entracte pour un drame inédit (Interlude for an original tragedy) was destined to be an opera based on Pushkin, but sadly never saw the light of day. The esteemed nocturne, created in 1912 in Montreux under the direction of a young Ernest Ansermet, was regularly performed in popular concerts throughout Europe at the beginning of the last century before fading into obscurity. © François Hudry/Qobuz
