About this Recording

MILHAUD, D.: Alissa / L'Amour Chante / Poemes Juifs (Farley, Constable)

One of Milhaud’s finest and most expressive later scores, L’Amour chante sets poems on the subject of love by various poets, making of each a ‘novel within a sigh’. In the Poèmes juifs, whose anonymous texts Milhaud read in a magazine, the vocal line threads its way through myriad keys, creating subtle effects reminiscent of Fauré or Debussy. Alissa, based on a novel by André Gide, completes this survey of the cream of Milhaud’s output for voice and piano.
