Poeme D'Un Jour
My copy arrived today. The whole thing is in French and Spanish, and all of it is gorgeous.
Ailyn Pérez is a lyric soprano with a range of colors at her disposal. In her 40s she will probably become more of a spinto, but for now she is firmly in the lyric Fach. She probably most closely resembles Victoria de los Angeles who sang a little Wagner for no reason that anyone can recall. Ailyn is already slightly heavier, slightly darker than Victoria.
They also share the gift for French and Spanish repertoire. Ailyn uses her colors to great effect in this very stylish album.
