Notes & Reviews:

"...The twenty-seven songs are all little gems. They range from early, youthful efforts to melodies from his last year, and embraced an amazingly wide variety of styles; but all - from first to last - have the vitality of youth: Saint-Saens was something of a Peter Pan figure... Francois Le Roux, described by the critics as the 'greatest Pelleas since Jacques Jansen,' has a most appealing, silken baritone voice...It goes straight into my top drawer marked the best of 1997!" -Fanfare

'Another immensely pleasant recital from Hyperion, both in content and performance. [François Le Roux] is establishing himself as the leading French baritone of the day' (Classic CD)

'Musical jewels surface with delightful consistency in this 27-song recital. An absorbing and revelatory disc' (BBC Music Magazine) 'François Le Roux est l'interprète prédestiné. Son intelligence des mots, son sens de la juste inflexion font ici merveille' (Diapason, France)

'This is the most resounding blow yet to be struck for the mélodies of Saint-Saëns... Le Roux is one of the most charismatic performers of our time... this is certainly one of the best things he has done so far. A double welcome for performers and rare repertory' (Gramophone)

'Apoya magnificamente al baritono, firmando entre ambos un trabajo auténticamente digno de conocerse. Sonido exemplar' (CD Compact, Spain)

'There's hardly a dud among these 30-or-so songs on this well filled, perfectly recorded disc, an ideal accompaniment to a hot summer evening' (The Daily Telegraph)
