Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...Cambreling opts for the otherwise unavailable Ariosi (1963), an intriguing and poetic conflation of song-cycle and violin concerto. The Tasso verses, telling of remembered and lost love, link the piece directly to the Lieder tradition – though Henze’s use of the violin as the main melodic voice, with the soprano a ghostly presence which only assumes the foreground at the starkly funereal close, sets the expression at a post-Romantic remove. Christiane Oelze and Christian Ostertag complement each other in their purity of line and phrasing, while Cambreling’s moulding of emotional contours makes for an involving performance which is alone worth the price of the disc."
