The Ondine new release by internationally renowned soprano Véronique Gens includes performances of Herminie and Les Nuits d’été by Hector Berlioz and Shéhérazade by Maurice Ravel with the Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire under the baton of Music Director John Axelrod. Gens has made a big career with Baroque repertoire and Mozart, but French repertoire, especially Berlioz and Ravel, are “as natural to her as the air that she breathes.”

Axelrod has been music director of the Orchestre since 2009, and follows the philosophy of being “open to the world” by extraordinarily diverse repertoire choices and innovative programming.

Ondine
Ondine is offering the track "Berloiz: Les Nuits D’été - No. 4: Absence" from Berlioz: Herminie; Les Nuits d'été / Ravel: Shéhérazade for SFCV readers to download and enjoy.
