Notes and Editorial Reviews

On her new album Femmes, Marie-Josee Lord passionately embodies heroines of operas by Puccini, Verdi, and Massenet. The sparkling Canadian soprano brings to life such wonderful operatic characters as Violetta, Aida, Cio-Cio-San, Thais, and Salome. Marie-Josee Lord is accompanied by the Orchestre symphonique de Laval under the direction of Alain Trudel. Marie-Josee Lord’s eponymously titled first album (which was awarded a Felix prize by Adisq as the best classical vocal album of the year 2011), as well as her last two albums on the ATMA label, Amazing Grace (2014) and Yo soy Maria (2012), have won the hearts of the public. Founded in 1984, the Orchestre symphonique de Laval is composed of professional musicians all of whom are graduates of Read more conservatories or universities in Quebec. The audience is at the heart of all the orchestra’s activities; its chief mandate is to offer audiences grand symphonic music and provide a pleasurable listening experience. Read less
