Notes & Reviews:

World premiere of 'Sorrows' brings together 24 poems of Francis Jammes, excerpts from 'Clairiere dans le ciel', in which Darius Milhaud wrote in 1956, opus 355, suite for baritone and piano. Jean-Francois Gardeil and Irene Kudela unveil talent with what is most secret and most sensitive in the inspiration of the musician.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
This installment in the Melodiste Francais series presents three sets of songs. Tristesses (1956) is Milhaud's longest cycle of songs, 23 linked settings of texts by Francis Jammes, most of them taking two minutes or less, beginning with a prelude that returns to introduce the final song. The program concludes with Catalogue de Fleurs (1920), six very short songs that express Milhaud's love for the colors and scents of flowers. Gardeil sings perfectly well. Kudela's performance is fine.
