The figure humaine kammerchor under the direction of Denis Rouger devotes its new album “Wo die Zitronen blühen...” once again to the wonderful German and French songs of the Romantic period. In these sensitive arrangements for choir and piano, the singers take the listeners down the most diverse paths of love in the poetry of both these countries. The well-known art songs, originally composed for solo voice and piano, are experienced in a completely new way when chorally interpreted. True gems of these two great European musical cultures have been selected for this recording, with songs by Georges Bizet, Gabriel Fauré, Henri Duparc, Fanny Hensel, Camille Saint-Saëns and Clara Schumann, among others. In addition, original choral works by Johannes Brahms, Hugo Wolf and Gabriel Fauré can be heard. The outstanding chamber choir is accompanied by the pianists Julia Kammerlander and Katharina Schlenker. The additional horns heard in some of the compositions complete the Romantic sound world.
