Product Description

CD Description

Two of Britain's leading exponents of French song, the acclaimed sopranos Lorna Anderson and Lisa Milne, join Malcolm Martineau for the second volume of Hyperions overview of Debussys haunting, mercurial songs. The French composers output in this genre extended throughout his life and he was always inspired by poetryfrom his first adolescent attempts to set Paul Verlaines Fêtes galantes (which he later revised) to the Trois Poèmes de Mallarmé, written five years before his death. All inhabit a universe of shifting colours and impressions, from the sensual, perfumed flutes and flesh of the Chansons de Bilitis to the Proses lyriques, which foreshadow the dreamlike atmosphere of Pelléas et Mélisande

Review

This is a true collaboration. Let us hope that, North of the border, there are no plans yet for a musical declaration of independence from either England- or France. --IRR,Apr'12

Lorna Anderson and Lisa Milne are consistently beautiful, alert to the implications of Debussy's word-setting, whether ecstatic or subdued, and instinctive in the use of vocal colour to summon up poetic images and emotions. --Gramophone,June'12
