With her new record „La Belle Excentrique“, soprano Patricia Petibon makes a welcome return to French repertoire, exploring the fascinating world of French art song in this extraordinary new album. The album features all-time favorites by Satie, Fauré, Poulenc, Reynaldo Hahn, Manuel Rosenthal, but also popular hits by Léo Ferré.

This selection takes the listener on an exciting journey of discovery: from the decadence of the cabarets of turn-of-the-century Paris to the melancholy of the 60s, from the eccentricity of the fin-de-siècle to modern-day spleen.

This original program is a collection of often humorous and eccentric songs with a deeper subtext.

Petibon is joined on this occasion by her accompanist and partner of many years, the superb pianist Susan Manoff, and a number of high-profile guests stemming from diverse musical backgrounds and influences, including star violinist Nemanja Radulovic and actor Olivier Py.

This is a wonderful new release from one of DG’s key vocalists. Featuring music of exceptional variety and contrast, it showcases Petibon’s versatility and multi-faceted artistry in an intimate setting as never before, while paying homage to the great tradition of French mélodie and chanson.

“Montmartre frivolity, Left Bank ennui: places and epochs are clearly pinpointed as Petibon’s wonderfully bright, firm voice, backed by Susan Manoff’s piano and guests of all stripes…Petibon’s 29 tracks form a beguiling tapestry, ingeniously scattered with musical flourishes that only increase the party spirit.” (The Times)
