Frecnh soprano Geneviève Moizan has died at the age of 96.
The soprano, who was born in 1923, performed from 1949 to 1968 at the Opéra de Paris and was among the performers at the world premiere of Poulenc’s “Stabat Mater.”
Moizan mostly performed in France and was a big interpreter of French music, particularly such works as Gounod’s “Faust,” Thomas’ “Mignon” and the works of Massenet. She performed alongside such greats as Jean Giraudeau, Henri Etcheverry, Jean Mollien, Rene Bianco, Robert Destain and Francois Louis.
Throughout her career she recorded a number of operettas but very little opera. However, there are a number of radio concerts that were recorded and released by Malibran.
Here she is performing from Berlioz’s “La Damnation de Faust.”
And here is another clip of the famed singer.
