The beginning of the year sees Chris in Valencia, Spain for several weeks, first recording a disc of French arias for SONY with their exciting new signing, the soprano Sonya Yoncheva. The orchestra of Valencia was conducted by Frédéric Chaslin. Right after that came a recording of the opera Manon Lescaut, conducted by Plácido Domingo. The cast included Ana Maria Martinez and Andrea Bocelli. A few weeks later, in a completely different musical and climate zone, Chris was in Berlin working with one of his favourite violinists, Augustin Dumay, for a disc of Brahms sonatas. The pianist was Louis Lortie.
