Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

On the occasion of Barraud's autobiography, it seems important to allow the public to rediscover the music of a man who, despite the weight of his public duties, was primarily a composer. He was reluctant to use his position as a means of self-promotion and did little to champion of his own music. The pieces are performed by his grandson, Nicolas Kruger

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
His five song cycles are all on this release, along with the six Impromptus for piano. The piano pieces are solid. The songs are brilliant. Chantefables is a handful of short songs about animals; some of them are hilarious. All the songs are incredibly well written and full of personality and humor. The singers could hardly be more enjoyable - they are enthusiastic and expressive. Kruger must be thanked for making such a convincing case for his grandfather's music.
