Paradis Sur Terre - A French Songbook
Catalog: CHAN 10893
SPENCE MARTINEAU, NICKY SPENCE
Tenor Nicky Spence joins pianist Malcolm Martineau for this album of French songs from the early twentieth century. The works on this album were rarely performed at the time of their compositions, as song recitals had not gained popularity. Most of these works were performed in private salons and in chamber settings. Composers featured on this album include Andre Caplet, Lili Boulanger, Claude Debussy, and Cecile Chaminade. Both performers on this album are award-winning artists. Nicky Spence is the 2015 Opera Awards Young Singer of the Year, and Malcolm Martineau was just honored with an OBE.
