During preparations for their 25th anniversary in 2010, the Ensemble Recherche came to the conclusion that “There are no love songs anymore”!

So they requested such pieces for the celebration from various composer friends. The response from the invited composers was very strong: more than 30 love songs have been written, with more in progress.

Accordingly, the list of composers for the love song cycle reads like a who’s who of New Music, with compositions as various as the personalities of the participating artists. The first thing to be noticed is the range of diverse kinds of love that have been depicted: from 'agape' (selfless devotion) to 'eros'.

In addition, the range of submitted compositions extends from solo pieces with accompaniment, via trios and quartets, to 'traditional' ensemble pieces – and beyond.
