Michèle Losier / Olivier Godin TEMPS NOUVEAU
Critically acclaimed for her rich voice and masterful musicality, French-Canadian mezzo-soprano Michèle Losier presents her first solo recital on the ATMA Classique label. “I was pregnant with my first child when I chose the songs for this recording. I felt simultaneously calm and overjoyed. I particularly remember the impression the lullaby Dors ami made on me; it deeply moved my maternal heart,” she says. Pianist Olivier Godin accompanies Losier in a program of French melodies by Gounod, Massenet, Franck, Bizet and Saint-Saëns.
