Review By Steve Arloff ,MusicWeb International,April 2011

This new disc of French “mélodies” embraces some rarely heard repertoire, including two world premieres. “Mélodie” is the term used to define French Art Songs from the mid-nineteenth century to the present as “lieder” describes the German equivalent. Evoking the heady days of the early twenties when excitement surrounded circuses, fairs, music hall, cabaret, the follies, and parades, these are charmingly presented songs from some of the most influential composers of the period. Their innovations put French music at the forefront in the twentieth century, even though the French themselves were seemingly more lukewarm than music-lovers in other countries.
