  • Sa voix enregistrée dans l´ opera de Thomas – Mignon – (édition Preiser ou Cantus Classics) et dans l´ opérette La Mascotte de Audran.

  • More than just a fine voice , what is really striking here is Genevieve Moizan’s power of expression and the way she makes every word count. It is indeed a lovely account of perhaps Berlioz’s most beautiful aria.
