Marie-Nicole Lemieux’s sixth recital recording on Naïve is a series of breathtaking melodies from the last decade of the 19th c., in the words of Ms. Lemieux “an incredibly rich, varied and pivotal era.” “These were the peak years of French mélodie: we hear Fauré – the Mélodies de Venise were among his first successes; Koechlin, very little known today but very forward-looking in his orchestration and harmony; and Chausson and Lekeu as well. The program is a wide-ranging journey through late 1800s Europe, illustrated by songs that I love, that I listen to myself.”
