About

Released to coincide with the opening of the 2014-2015 opera season in Bordeaux and to continue the celebration of the Wagner bicentenary, Paul Daniel accompanies the young American dramatic soprano Heidi Melton who has been called “the Wagnerian voice we have been waiting for since Flagstad and Nilsson” (La Presse), and a voice that is “big, gleaming and tonally resplendent.” (San Francisco Chronicle).

Ms Melton sang her first 'Siegfried' Brünnhilde in concert with Opéra National de Bordeaux, as well as the 'Immolation Scene' and 'Liebestod' for Wagner concerts in Bordeaux and on tour in France.

From the most vibrant pages of 'Tristan and Isolde' to the wonder of the 'Twilight of the Gods', through the famous overture to 'Tannhäuser', here are some captivating aspects of the master of Bayreuth's art which are played by an enthusiastic Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine.

"This could perhaps be the Wagnerian voice we have been waiting for since Flagstad and Nilsson.” - Claude Gingras, La Presse, July 12, 2010

Remember the name Heidi Melton. The American dramatic soprano, just 28, has a glorious career ahead of her. Elisabeth's ringing “Dich, teure Halle” from Tannhäuser and Sieglinde's more sombre and emotional “Der Männer Sippe” and “Du bist der Lenz” from Die Walküre displayed a huge voice that is bright, clear and sweet, and cocooned in a seductive vibrato. She has gorgeous low notes, beautiful phrasing, and interprets her singing from her soul.” - Paula Citron, The Globe and Mail, July 11, 2010
