Sophie Bevan (soprano) & Malcolm Martineau (piano)

The sunset glow of Max Reger’s late Romanticism is perfectly suited to the lustrous soprano voice of Sophie Bevan, here making her Hyperion debut in a programme of thirty-three of his songs. Malcolm Martineau accompanies.

“If you are looking for a single disc of Reger’s songs, look no further. Bevan and Martineau prove an outstanding partnership in this wonderful music.” Music Week, October 2016

“His music doesn’t deserve its neglect, even if his settings of Meinem Kinde and Morgen won’t displace Strauss’s...[Bevan] is characterful in the song quoting Mendelssohn’s Wedding March ironically, as Mother advises her daughter to remain single.” Sunday Times

Jennifer France (soprano), Malcolm Martineau (piano)

Hyperion presents a third volume in its acclaimed Debussy songs series, accompanied and curated by Malcolm Martineau, with booklet notes by French music expert par excellence Roger Nichols. Young soprano Jennifer France, winner of the Song Prize at the 2014 Kathleen Ferrier Awards and making her debut on the label, has a thrillingly expressive voice of diamantine beauty and is an ideal performer of these songs. Baritone Jonathan McGovern performs Le promenoir des deux amants and other songs with warm tone and great musical sensitivity.

“France negotiates the upper-altitude territory both with accuracy and with sensitivity to the songs' moods, with smoothness of line matching her subtlety of vocal inflection...McGovern shows himself to be thoroughly at home within the normal baritone register...Martineau, whose pianism is a constant delight, has devised a proper recital programme rather than a completist survey.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2014

Sylvia Schwartz (soprano) & Malcolm Martineau (piano)

A deeply seductive album of Spanish songs by composers including Granados and Turina, performed by the young Spanish soprano Sylvia Schwartz, whose commitment to this repertoire is described above, and is evident from her utterly enchanting performances.

A work from Granados’ Goyescas, perhaps more familiar in the piano version, opens the programme, which continues with Tonadillas en estilo antiguo, a set also inspired by the paintings of Goya and in which this soprano demonstrates her wonderful emotional and dramatic range. The folk-influenced set of songs by Guridi is a beautiful series of Castillan melodies, creatively transcribed by the composer with aplomb. The recital is completed by works by Turina, Toldrá and Montsalvage, including the latter’s universally popular ‘Canción de cuna para dormir a un negrito’.

“There's a tangy, lived-in quality in Schwartz's tone that is immediately appealing. She compensates for some metallic top notes and an occasional lack of fullness in her lower registers with a wide emotional range” The Guardian, 7th February 2013 ****

“This is a delightful programme of early twentieth-century Spanish song...[Martineau] proves to be an instinctive Spaniophile in his enchantingly nuanced accompaniments. He brings us as close as it is possible in a purely aural medium to the sights and scents of Spain...[Schwartz] delivers these songs with impressive precision and security. On a purely technical level, these are performances of the highest order.” International Record Review, February 2013

“Hers is not a big, fruity Caballe voice but a soubrette - a voice small enough to convey subtlety without having to scale back but one that also encompasses the volatility of this repertoire without audible strain.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2013

“Sharpness and sweetness combine attractively in Sylvia Schwartz's voice. The mixture is perfect for this programme of Spanish songs, some barely a minute long, all beautifully characterised by the soprano and her accompanist Malcolm Martineau” The Independent on Sunday, 3rd March 2013 ****

Trois Poèmes de Stéphane Mallarmé

Lorna Anderson (soprano)

Two of Britain’s leading exponents of French song, the acclaimed sopranos Lorna Anderson and Lisa Milne, join Malcolm Martineau for the second volume of Hyperion’s overview of Debussy’s haunting, mercurial songs. The French composer’s output in this genre extended throughout his life and he was always inspired by poetry—from his first adolescent attempts to set Paul Verlaine’s Fêtes galantes (which he later revised) to the Trois Poèmes de Mallarmé, written five years before his death. All inhabit a universe of shifting colours and impressions, from the sensual, perfumed ‘flutes and flesh’ of the Chansons de Bilitis to the Proses lyriques, which foreshadow the dreamlike atmosphere of Pelléas et Mélisande.

“The first thing to say that the performances by sopranos Lorna Anderson and Lisa Milne are consistently beautiful, alert to the implications of Debussy's word-setting, whether ecstatic or subdued...Martineau matches them in the subtlety, characterisation and refined textures of his piano-playing” Gramophone Magazine, June 2012

“Anderson and Milnes contrasting in approach. Anderson effortlessly glides through Debussy's limpid, lengthy phrases, while Milne's shivering sense of wonder is Melisande-like in its pent-up excitement. Milne's breathy approach to the sublime Ariettes oubliees has plenty of frisson about it” BBC Music Magazine, July 2012 ****

Joan Rodgers (soprano) & Malcolm Martineau (piano)

Few Russian composers could resist setting verses by Alexander Pushkin, and his influence on the development of Russian music was indirectly as great as his influence on literature. This collection demonstrates the compelling power of the poet, and the beauty of the music he inspired. It is performed by Joan Rodgers, herself an acknowledged master of Russian repertoire, and Malcolm Martineau.

“To the gentlest songs… Rodgers brings as much gracefulness and subtlety as ever, and timbre as exquisitely fragrant and fine-grained.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2009 ****

“A treasure trove of Russian song that will reward repeated listening for years.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2009

Trois Ballades de François Villon

This collection includes songs from pretty well the whole of Debussy’s composing life, some of them well-known and acknowledged masterpieces, and some of them much less familiar though no less worthy of inclusion. Most of them, though, date from the 1880s and early 90s. Nuit d'étoiles is in fact Debussy's first published composition, dating from 1880 when he was eighteen. The Trois Ballades de François Villon date from 1910.

Christopher Maltman sings them all with his now familiar stylishness and sensitivity to words.

“an admirable recital” BBC Music Magazine

“You could not wish for more than Maltman’s intelligent singing and Martineau’s customary sensitivity to every nuance” Classic FM Magazine

“On the present disc, Maltman distinguishes himself beyond expectation in the realm of French Mélodie, singing throughout with elegance, conviction, communicativeness, specific attention to the text, and unblemished technical security, all utterly without mannerism, in a varied program spanning 30 years (1880 -1910) of Debussy song ... You should go out and buy it right now” Fanfare

“Christopher Maltman has already distinguished himself as a lieder singer, but now he reveals himself as a stunningly apt exponent of French mélodies” Opera News

“nuanced and sensitive performances.” David Smith, Presto Classical, September 2014

“this young baritone invests all he touches with equal consideration and the 21 songs in his programme emerge fresh and compelling … a recording of strong focus” Yorkshire Evening Post
