NATALIE DESSAY SINGS CLAUDE NOUGARO IN THE POIGNANT ALBUM "ON THE BLACK SCREEN OF MY SLEEPLESS NIGHTS". ON STAGE, SHE ALSO CARESSES THE POEMS OF THE IMMENSE TOULOUSE MUSICIAN WITH HER SOFT AND GRAVE VOICE. "Claude Nougaro is a man who magnified and sang the woman as a person, with great tenderness and femininity," says an admiring Natalie Dessay. The Lyon-born ex-singer has been exploring new musical tracks in recent years. With the album "On the Black Screen of My Sleepless Nights" released last November, she pays tribute to the poet-singer by bringing her own timbre to titles often unknown. "I wanted to propose something sweet and intimate," continues the artist. On arrangements by Yvan Cassar, himself a travelling companion of the last years of the emblematic Toulouse, Natalie Dessay signs a very successful album, and delights in concert the fans of Claude Nougaro in a very intimate exchange.
