Notes & Reviews:

Although the instrumental and orchestral music of the Franco-German Romantic Théodore Gouvy (1819 - 98) is slowly being rediscovered, his songs remain largely unknown. Gouvy's melodious songs, 105 in number, show a predilection for the 16th c. love-poems of Pierre de Ronsard: 40 of the songs set Ronsard texts. Of the 26 songs on this disc, only eleven have been recorded before, and none in the key the composer intended, as they are here for the first time. The other fifteen songs are first-ever recordings. Pianist Joel Schoenhals accompanies soprano MeeAe Nam and tenor John Elwes.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The charming music of Theodore Gouvy is worth exploring. The songs are delicate and lovely, and there is nice variety in this program. Schoenhals's playing is terrific - supportive and clear. I like the songs and hope this album will inspire other recordings of them. Notes, texts, and translations.
