CD Reviews

Most spectacular French album ever produced.
12/06/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is, perhaps, the best French album ever recorded in the entire history of mankind. Nana may sound great in English but her French is absolutely divine. These songs are among the most famous and most beautiful songs ever written to begin with, but Nana's beautiful, clear voice, and marvelous interpretation makes them sound 100 times better. Her command of the French language is (and has always been) spectacular. She rivals (or even outdoes) native speakers. It is absolutely flawless. One would never guess it's not her native language. Although the majority of the songs are in French, there are also 2 VERY well-known Italian songs on this CD ("Con te partiro" and "Caruso" - both of which are internationally famous). Her interpretation of them is second in quality to none. Also, the first song is sung in Greek, French, and English and is based on the choral portion of Beethoven's ninth symphony. Her rendition of "Le temps des cerises" will leave you in tears. Again, her ability to sing in French (combined with her amazingly beautiful voice and excellent production) is so incredibly excellent it boggles the mind. If you enjoy classic French and Italian songs then to not have this CD would be a sin. You will NOT be disappointed. If you do not already speak French and Italian, the power and majesty of this CD will make you want to learn them."
Magical collection of French songs!

"This inspiring "Hommage" album, contains some of the Greatest music ever performed/written by an artist. It's quite a tough thing to play around with material written by legends like Brel, Dalla, Brassens... Nana does it with such ease... she really pours her love into every song. What you get here is a genuine, rare timeless album...
Bravo Nana...
Strictly Recommended."
