Notes & Reviews:

"Older collectors will recall the decades between tantalizing, tiny handfuls of Chausson's 'melodies'... When, at last, an 'integrale' turned up for review several years ago, I was drawn into their sensuous, sumptuous sound world and held there for weeks, returning avidly to be swung from somber lassitude to soaring ecstasy. It became a secret garden of profound delight... Art is long, life is short, and this offering is very, very rich." -Corleonis, Fanfare

'Superb. Art is long, life is short, and this offering is very, very rich' (Fanfare, USA)

'To have the complete collection gathered together on disc is a treat, and with artists like these, the performances are about as good as you could expect this side of the pearly gates... If a reason for a reassessment of Chausson's role as a writer of mélodie is needed, this marvellous set is overwhelmingly it' (Amazon.co.uk)

'This is Hyperion at its best, presenting sensuous, exquisite performances... Dames Felicity Lott and Ann Murray generate magical artistry' (Music Week)

'Up to Hyperion's habitual high standard' (Gramophone)

'With this disc, the music of Chausson really does find revelatory new significance' (The Times)

'Felicity Lottis radiant and unhurried and the pick of an excellent crop of singers' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Unlikely to be bettered' (www.musicweb)

'Editor, musicologist, impresario and pianist Graham Johnson gives us a jewel-box of essays, poems, time-lines, artwork, and Chausson's complete songs. And the performances are as magical and eloquent as the program book' (Opera News)
