Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ravel’s oeuvre is relatively small, and his songs form an essential part of it. Exquisite, refined, exotic, full of colouristic effects and unheard?of timbres, they are a cornerstone of the 20th century song repertoire. This new recording contains the complete songs, accompanied by piano or by instrumental ensemble.

Beautiful performances by 4 young singers: Monica Piccinini, Elisabetta Lombardi, Sophie Marilley and tenor Christian Immler. All of these vocalists are enjoying successful careers, singing in prestigious opera houses all over Europe. Christian Immler’s earlier recordings have won the prestigious Diapason d’Or.

Booklet contains extensive liner notes and artist biographies. The sung texts are available
