5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC! Nov. 11 2013
By A. N. Pikarsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Normally, I hate it when female opera singers sing mainstream music...they either sound like they're slumming, or trying to swat a fly with a Cadillac. Mme. Dessay, however, achieves spot-on perfection as she sings in a sexy, clear, delightful new voice. This isn't Lucia, the pyrotechnics are much more subtle, but listen... it takes incredible skill and talent to sing this difficult, emotional, lovely music so effortlessly and beautifully. Brava, Natalie!

truly wonderful I have always treasured Legrand's work but was really pleased by the songs as performed.The quality of the vocal performance was superb and really made the music come alive. Thank you for the gift of two great performers coming together.

3.0 out of 5 stars Less than the best Nov. 10 2013
By D. Lee Edwards - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Mme Dessay disappoints in this pop release. Instead of her usual brilliant coloratura voice we hear the voice somewhat drained of color in mostly straight tone without vibrato and sounding a bit harsh in the close miking of the recording. The piano background with Legrand is well done but thin sounding compared to lush orchestrations which we normally hear in his music. It is a pleasure to hear Dessay's clear French diction. However, her tentative interpretation of "Papa Can You Hear Me?" does not come close to Streisand's original Yentl rendtion full of emotion. Likewise her somewhat hurried rendition of the theme from "Les parapluies de Cherbourg" does not erase memories of the achingly wistful original soundtrack recording with Catherine Deneuve. Contributions from baritone Laurent Naouri and soprano Patricia Petibon on two of the songs do little to help the mood. There's a certain harshness to the sound. On first hearing, casual listeners in the other room said this recording was annoying. For the best from this beloved soprano, listen to her fabulous "The Miracle of the Voice" from Virgin Classics.
