Notes & Reviews:

Stella Doufexis conducts us into the tender darkness of summer nights full of promise, in which hearing is more acute than sight. To a background of subdued orchestral colors, the singer pours out her heartfelt mezzo, summoning up poetic dream images. The consummate instrumentation of Berlioz, Chausson, and Ravel is a testimony to a continuing tradition: rarely do works of the 19th and 20th centuries blend so harmoniously together.
