“Gerville-Réache’s sumptuous dark voice….finds in her magisterial account of Dalila’s ‘Printemps qui commence’, where she sounds like a whole cello section, caressing and pointing the text….Her dramatic reading of Hahn’s setting of the Verlaine ‘D’une Prison’ gives a further glimpse of what her concert performances may well have been like. Certainly, she is at the other end of the spectrum from a singer like Claire Croiza….a vocal personality that commands our deep respect.”
