Notes & Reviews:

Hyperion presents a third volume in their acclaimed Debussy songs series, accompanied and curated by pianist Malcolm Martineau, with booklet notes by French music expert par excellence Roger Nichols. Young soprano Jennifer France, winner of the Song Prize at the 2014 Kathleen Ferrier Awards and making her debut on the label, has a thrillingly expressive voice of diamantine beauty and is an ideal performer of these songs. Baritone Jonathan McGovern also performs with warm tone and great musical sensitivity.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2014
France negotiates the upper-altitude territory both with accuracy and with sensitivity to the songs' moods, with smoothness of line matching her subtlety of vocal inflection...McGovern shows himself to be thoroughly at home within the normal baritone register...Martineau, whose pianism is a constant delight, has devised a proper recital programme rather than a completist survey.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
I am convinced that everything Malcolm Martineau touches turns to gold. Jennifer France's silvery voice is perfectly suited to this repertoire, soaring with ease in the higher moments in 'La Romance d'Ariel' and the ballad 'Les Elfes' where she also shows her fine skills as a storyteller. 'Chanson Triste' and 'Dans le Jardin' he sings with great sensitivity. The ballad 'La Belle au Bois Dormant' is broad and clear and it was nice to hear the short cycle 'Le Promenoir Des Deux Amants'. Martineau, as usual, is superb. Notes, texts, and translations.
