Six Spanish Songs Op. 100


Henk Neven (baritone), Hans Eijsackers (piano)

Spain and Spanish themes are at the core of this unusual and attractive recital from Dutch baritone Henk Neven. Ibert's Quatre chansons de Don Quichote, Shostakovich's Six Spanish Songs op100 imbue the Spanish theme with an unmistakable Russian flavour, Ravel's Trois chanson de Don Quichote, Dorumgard Spanish Traditional Songs.

“Neven’s lightish, sensual baritone speaks volumes in both Ibert’s Chansons and Don Quichotte à Dulcinée…[Eijsackers] is superbly graceful and subtle. His solos, admirable in their strength and delicacy, are first-rate too” Gramophone Magazine, July 2016

“There is much that is extremely beautiful here … the harmonisations are very effective and Eijsackers delivers them with commendable poise and discretion.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2016 ****

Le roi a fait battre tambour


Shadi Torbey (bass), David Miller (piano), Lionel Lhote (baritone), Daniel Blumenthal (piano)

There are many leading threads in this audacious disc, even if they are not always apparent. A few words by way of explanation!

The first concerns the performers: what do the bass Shadi Torbey and the baritone Lionel Lhote have in common? Answer: their magnificent positions as fourth and sixth in the Queen Elisabeth Competition for singing in 2004. A perfectly justified surprise; their youth, their maturity, their enthusiasm charmed the musical press and the Belgian press.

The second concerns French song. On this CD major works from the repertory are joined by a few rarities: very different styles with texts of highly diverse origins.

Déodat de Séverac, for example, offers us delicate pieces with typically French refinement, often imbued with the fragrance of his native region in the south of France.

Meyerbeer’s itinerary was nothing if not original: born in Germany, he Italianised his first name when he emigrated to Italy where he devoted himself mainly to the composition of operas, being at this time no less popular than Rossini. He settled subsequently in Paris, where he died. A veritable master of vocal composition, Meyerbeer wrote hundreds of songs.

A child prodigy, Camille Saint-Saëns occupied an essential place in French music. His Danse Macabre was first composed for the voice and only later became the celebrated symphonic poem.

Francis Poulenc was atypical, both “hooligan and monk”. His style is in the neo-classical vein, close to the songs of Ravel. Composed just after World War I, the eight little pearls in the cycle of Chansons Gaillardes often play on double meanings, being funny, with false naivety and solemnity.

Lastly, the music of Jacques Ibert is brim full of humour, effects, gaiety, charm and originality. The four Chansons de Don Quichotte, dating from 1932, were written for a film.

This is a CD that will delight all amateurs of French song, of young talent and superb voices.

George London (bass-baritone) & Erik Werba (piano)

George London was the outstanding Amfortas,Wotan and Dutchman of the late 1950s and early '60s, but also belonged among those singers with a mature vocal technique and intelligent characterisation who were able to enthuse audiences in the concert hall without relying merely on their stage charisma (even though that was present in abundance). At the height of his career, which was cut short tragically, London gave a lieder recital at the Theater an der Wien. It was there that he had laid the foundations of his European career (and thus also of his later, triumphant return to his native North America). London began his recital with the Heine songs from Schubert's Schwanengesang, wandered in the footsteps of Feodor Chaliapin by singing Jacques Ibert's Iberian-influenced Don Quichotte and finally Modest Mussorgski's Songs and Dances of Death - tone paintings of archaic grandeur in which he was wholly in his element. In all three cycles, Erik Werba as accompanist completely lived up to his reputation as a modest, but equal partner. In addition to this live recording from Austrian Radio, ORFEO here offers as a bonus the five songs by Henri Duparc with which George London had ten years earlier made his lieder debut before a microphone, in Canada, the country of his birth.

Carlo Colombara (bass) & Rani Calderon (piano)

This CD presents a collection of French art songs – mélodies - covering a wide range of emotional and stylistic content from Fauré to Ibert. The French declamatory style emphasizes the text rather than the melody, but it is the piano part where the beauty of the music can shine through, both in the rich textures employed and in the special harmonies. This is particularly evident in the songs by Henri Duparc. The three songs by Ravel were his last works. Carlo Colombara has been a regular guest at the leading opera houses in Italy and abroad. He has worked with the most renowned conductors, such as Sir Colin Davis, Carlo Maria Giulini, Vladimir Jurowski, Riccardo Muti, Giuseppe Sinopoli and Sir Georg Solti. Critics in Italy and abroad have praised his stylistic versatility and the dark timbre and the colourful diversity of Colombara’s voice makes him one of the most sought-after basses of our time.

“The other find of the evening was Carlo Colombara, a bass making his New York debut as Mocenigo. Mr. Colombara's sound is deep and rounded, and he projected Mocenigo's malign character powerfully but without forcing it.” New York Times
