Notes and Editorial Reviews
During preparations for their 25th anniversary in 2010, the Ensemble Recherche came to the conclusion that the "theme" for their celebration should be songs of love. After discovering there were so few modern examples, the group commissioned works from various composer friends. The response from the invited composers was strong. Thirty love songs are included in this set, but still more are in progress. Accordingly, the list of composers for this love song cycle reads like a "Who's Who" of new music and the compositions are as varied as the personalities of the participating artists.
