Notes & Reviews:

This latest recital from the eternal spring of Graham Johnsons pioneering research is entitled Linvitation au voyage. Johnson takes us on a fascinating armchair tour of twenty-four melodies from a fascinating period of time when nothing really mattered. No fewer than eight composers are new to the Hyperion catalogue, already so rich in French song, and while these microcosms of salon charm are rarely sublime, every note is perfectly placed. True to the discs title, four complete settings of the famous Baudelaire text are featured. Listen to the sheer quality of music-making as tenor John Mark Ainsley is alive to every halting breath of a song. -The Times (UK)

'Graham Johnson is quite literally changing the way we hear French mélodie. What a voyage to be invited to join!' (International Record Review)

'Ainsley - urbane, sexy and witty throughout - is at his absolute best' (The Guardian)

'A disc to treasure' (BBC Music Magazine)

'John Mark Ainsley understands the idiom of these beguiling songs and delivers them with grace, fluency and clear diction ... Graham Johnson's playing is as vivd and piquant as his booklet notes. A delectable disc' (Daily Telegraph)

'How does Graham Johnson do it? Once again, he has explored territory that few today have even considered worthy of investigation, and once again, he has come up with an extraordinary CD' (Fanfare, USA)

'Comme toujours, John Mark Ainsley touche à la perfection tant par le style que pour son impeccable diction, et Graham Johnson poursuit en maître artisan son indefatigable exploration du monde du lied et de la mélodie' (Diapason)

'one of the finest examples of Gallic song performance' (MusicWeb International)
