The Cras project reaches its conclusion. This is no doubt the final volume in a long series. It is entirely devoted to the works that Jean Cras composed for his wife or children, all of them musicians. For a man whose career in the French Navy often kept him apart from his family it was a means of drawing closer to them: the Âmes d’enfants are presented here in their original version for the six hands of his three daughters, the four pieces for violin and piano intended as successive birthday offerings for his little boy, the much awaited child whose first birthday Cras would celebrate with a piano piece of the same name (Premier Anniversaire) — a highly elaborate and difficult work, of which Timpani owns the manuscript. As for his wife, he dedicated to her shortly before his death these Trois Chansons Bretonnes, a prefiguration perhaps of his death. And finally, the Piano Concerto finds here a performer of choice (in an INA 1948 source): his daughter, the work’s dedicatee who was a remarkable pianist and who formed a duet with her husband Alexander Tansman.

The performers are regulars to the collection. Particular care has been taken with the booklet: a text by a specialist, very many photos, most newly released, that reveal a Jean Cras who swapped his officer’s uniform for more homely garb.

2012 is the centenary of Jules Massenet’s death. Several of his operas have received important revivals this year

Unlike most other Massenet albums released this year this 2CD set celebrates equally his orchestral music (now becoming familiar once again in the concert hall after several years of neglect) and his operas.

Although the performances were recorded in the mono era, the majority of vocal extracts stem from a golden period of French music-making (1910s-1930s) and the orchestral recordings have been rated by critics as sonically ahead of their time.

Singers include Edmond Clément, Ninon Vallin, Georges Thill, Emma Luart, Bidu Sayão, Marcel Journet, Fanny Heldy and Cesare Valletti in roles they made famous. Jean Fournet, Albert Wolff, Robert Irving and Sir Thomas Beecham conduct the works for orchestra.
