Notes & Reviews:

"This Erato disc is devoted entrirely to extremely lyrical romantic songs. The're all about love and passion - all great fun!" Natalie Dessay and Philippe Cassard about Finacailles pour rire. Soprano Natalie Dessay and pianist Philippe Cassard renew their recital partnership with an enticing programme of French song from the 19th and 20th centuries.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2015
As one might expect... from an artist who once styled herself an actress first and a singer second, Dessay can be idiosyncratic: if you value sound over sense in this repertoire, you might need a period of adjustment before her strengths become apparent... Cassard is wonderfully elegant, refined and super-subtle throughout... stick with the disc if you're unsure of it at first hearing - it takes its time to fully yield its secrets and get under your skin.
