About

Thomas Hampson’s ‘Serenade’ is his first album exclusively dedicated to French song.

Critically acclaimed and lauded, Hampson has starred in the title roles of Chausson’s Le roi Arthus at the Opéra National de Paris; Massenet’s Werther (baritone version) at The Metropolitan Opera and Théâtre National du Châtelet; Massenet’s Thaïs (Athanaël) at Lyric Opera of Chicago and The Metropolitan Opera; Offenbach’s Les Contes d’Hoffmann (Four Villains) at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; and Thomas’s Hamlet at the Théâtre National du Châtelet.

Mr Hampson carries the title of Commandeur dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of the Republic of France.

Curated with the French Literature scholar Sylvain Fort and in a first collaboration with the Polish pianist Maciej Pikulski, the track listing includes romantic and introspective as well as humorous selections by Bizet, Chabrier, Chausson, Gounod, Magnard, Massenet, and Saint-Saëns, featuring texts written by some of France's most revered writers including Victor Hugo, Paul Verlaine, Rosemonde Gérard, and others.
