8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By J.K. Tapio on December 30, 2008
Format: Audio CD
This album does not quite deliver what the fancy cover suggests -- and this is all for the better. To my mind, the cover suggests an entirely different content and genre -- pop/rock that is, maybe an early Kate Bush album? Certainly not a showcase album for a French soprano specializing in French Baroque repertoire?

But that is indeed the case here -- a showcase for a brilliant soprano whose repertory ranges from such modern songs as those by Bernstein and Dello Joio (included on this album) to pieces by Handel, Rameau and other Baroque composers. Moreover, this is a collection os "folies", or extravagancies, so the gaudy cover can perhaps be pardoned (but the fact remains that it could turn people away who might otherwise greatly enjoy this music).

What a wonder, then, that such a mishmash collection of very different pieces actually works! From the entirely delightful beginning of four sung recipes taken from a French cookbook and composed by Leonard Bernstein we move to the hauntingly beautiful "Mélodies passagères" by Samuel Barber (on poems by Rilke), and then on to the three Canadian Christmas carols, sung with an accompanying boy choir. "A jubilant song" is written for a choir and based on a poem by Walt Whitman.

The Baroque section consists of a secular cantata by Handel and an excerpt from Antonio Caldara's oratorio, La Passione di Gesù Cristo Signor Nostro. The latter must surely be counted among the most beautiful music of its kind ever set on disc.

Format: Audio CD
Patricia Petibon is equally at home in the music of Rameau and Caldara as she is in the humorous works of Bernstein. One of the more exciting singers of the day, this recording gives us a new insight into her huge talent. The recitals of this witty and talented French soprano have received great acclaim around the world. This new compilation serves as a great introduction to her unique talent and also demonstrates her great versatility. For versatility alone this collection is worth adding to the library - and that saying nothing about the aplomb she uses to carry off these pieces. The works included here are as follows:
LA BONNE CUISINE: 4 recipes, for voice & piano: Plum Pudding, by Leonard Bernstein; Queues de bouf by Samuel Barber (both with Susan Manoff, piano); Tavouk Gueunksis by Malcolm Bruno; Civet à toute vitesse by Norman Della Joio (with Matthew Schwinghammer, piano)

Mélodies passagères (5), songs for voice & piano, Op. 27: Puisque tout passé by George Frederick Handel (with Paul Agnew, tenor) and Le Concert d'Astree

Mélodies passagères (5), songs for voice & piano, Op. 27: Un cygne , Tombeau dans un parc , Le clocher chante, Départ , D'où viens-tu, bergère? (La Passione Di Gesu Cristo Signor Nostro ) by Antonio Caldara with Europa Galante

Trois Noëls Québécois, for soprano, mezzo-soprano & boys' chorus: Gabriel from Orphee Aux Enfers by Jacques Offenbach with Orchestre de Chambre de Grenoble

Trois Noëls Québécois, for soprano, mezzo-soprano & boys' chorus: Les bergers à Bethléem from Platee Ou Junon Jalouse by Jean-Philippe Rameau

Every work is a delight and the performances are splendid. Grady Harp, April 12

The highlight on this album for me is the Handel duet. For people who like Baroque and/or Handel, I think you will like this piece. It is sung in Italian and has a wonderful Baroque/operatic mix. I also liked the Dello Joio piece "Jubilant Song" which is a modern choral chant with piano accompaniment. Samuel Barber wrote some beautiful vocal works and his pieces on this album should be in your music library.

I bought this album for the Norman Dello Joio piece because I remember performing it as a kid in high school choir. The piano accompaniment always gave me chills. Well of course I was delightfully suprised by the other great pieces on here (mostly Baroque and French). This is a wonderful album and Patricia has a very energetic voice that works very well with the music.
