After an album of French songs that earned her a Gramophone Award in 2016, Veronique Gens presents her new recital, this time with orchestra, which gives her an opportunity to display the maturity of her ''Falcon'' soprano, the central tessitura typical of French Romantic opera, which takes its name from Cornelie Falcon, who created the works of Meyerbeer and Halevy staged in the 1830s

Un nouveau commerce de la virtuosité : émancipation et métamorphoses de la musique concertante au sein des institutions musicales parisiennes (1780-1830) by Alexandre Dratwicki( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in French and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popularity of the "symphonie concertante" in France is linked both chronologically and stylistically to the classical period (1770-1830). This genre set the stage for the French capital's greatest virtuosos to be heard attempting to outdo each other in what were at times the utmost difficult instrumental skills. As of the end of Louis the sixteenth's reign, the "symphonie concertante" was used as a means of publicity in the business strategy of several Parisian institutions. Originally employed as musical entertainment on the same stage during intermissions, it soon became an integral part of the dramatic performances it had previously punctuated at the "Opéra Comique" and the "Académie de Musique". Musical hybrids were born : the "symphonie concertante" overture or arias with several solo instruments. However, the most original innovation was that of the "symphonie concertante" as a musical support for dance in the last "ballet-pantomimes" by Gossec, Catel and Méhul. The first part of this PhD thesis is dedicated to the summary of the musical characteristics of this genre. This is followed by a description of the post-revolutionary Parisian institutions in which the instrumentalists evolved. The last two chapters are dedicated to the different metamorphoses of the genre under the influence of certain repertories
Giacomo Puccini et Albert Carré : "Madame Butterfly" à Paris by Michela Niccolai( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Suite à l'insuccès da la création de 'Madama Butterfly' à Milan (17 février 1904), Giacomo Puccini se plonge dans la réflexion afin de donner une nouvelle structure à sa "tragédie japonaise". Après plusieurs 'versions', la création parisienne de 'Madame Butterfly' a établi un modèle pour les représentations de l'œuvre jusqu'à aujourd'hui. La collaboration avec Albert Carré, directeur et metteur en scène à l'Opéra-Comique, se révèle fondamentale pour le compositeur, qui apporte de nombreux changements dramaturgiques et musicaux à sa partition. Le résultat tient aussi de la réalisation visuelle: Carré prépare une mise en scène qui interagit avec la partition pour un résultat des plus modernes, tenant compte des ferments théâtraux qui animent l'Europe au tournant du XXe siècle. Au-delà d'une attention minutieuse portée aux mouvements scéniques (tant pour les solistes que pour les scènes de foule), le metteur en scène français expérimente également une nouvelle façon de concevoir l'éclairage scénique
