Notes and Editorial Reviews

Largely neglected following her death, the music of Poldowski- alias of Irene Regine Wieniawska- is brought back to life in this reimagining by David Jackson, director of the Paris-based chamber group Ensemble 1904. Featuring twenty-two settings of poems by the nineteenth-century French poet Paul Verlaine, the ensemble makes its recording debut with this alluring and compelling programme of song. Taking his lead from Poldowski herself, known to have made chamber versions of her own songs, Jackson presents a vivid recreation of one of Poldowski’s own concerts of song from 1912 with arrangements of songs for violin, piano, and double bass, and an extract from Poldowski’s Violin Sonata. This new album includes a full-color booklet with liner Read more notes. Read less
