Following the success of her chart-topping, ARIA-Award-nominated album An Australian in Paris, French Kiss showcases exquisite gems of French music that are a treasured part of Jane’s life and repertoire, due to the years she spent in France under the tutelage of Jean-Pierre Rampal and Alain Marion as a student of the French bel canto style of flute playing. Profoundly intimate, French Kiss enthrals us in a musical embrace, from the French Baroque to the sobbing heart of the French Romantique era, from the passionate world of Paris salons to the joyous insouciance of la Belle Époque, as well as re-interpreting classic French repertoire( Ferroud, Devienne) and Parisian cabaret favourites.
