With her versatile soprano, stunning good looks and unflinching passion for opera, Natasha Marsh has become a firm favourite with classical fans. Amour
, her debut album, may come as a surprise to those familiar with her classical repertoire however, since it showcases not only her love of arias but her fondness for classic pop songs and movie soundtracks too. While Marsh's voice is inevitably capable of hitting the soaring heights demanded of pieces such as Verdi's "Si Un Jour" (theme from Jean de Florette, which opens the album), Satie's "Gymnopedie No. 1" and Delibes' "Les Filles de Cadix," Marsh sounds surprisingly comfortable when tackling non-classical material - the sweeping romance of "Autumn Leaves," for example, or the dreamy undulations of Ewan McColl's "The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face." Likewise, her love of films (she studied music and drama and is equally passionate about both disciplines) adds an interesting undercurrent to the album, in particular her stirring renditions of Nino Rota's "Al Giochi Addio" (a.k.a. the theme from Romeo & Juliet
) and Bacalov's "Mi Mancherai" (the theme from Il Postino
). Overall, Amour
is sure to further establish Natasha Marsh as a seriously sonorous and highly accessible all-rounder. --Danny McKenna
