Régine Crespin sings Lieder and French melodies
Orchestre Philharmonique de l'ORTF - Janine Reiss (piano) - Christian Ivaldi (piano)
Thank you for your understanding.
In a Berlioz, Schubert or Poulenc recital, the French lioness live.
Born in Marseille in 1927, Régine Crespin finally succumbed to illness on July 5th, 2007. The one the Americans called "The French Lioness" had fought off two cancers, as she tells in her wonderful memoirs (À la ville, à la scène, published by Actes Sud). Of her, there fortunately remains archive images shot at different times in her career.
