About

It’s a voice that wraps itself around you … long, sinuous phrasing, warm tone and a sophistication that touches everything she sings.” – The Times of London

Such praise is entirely typical of critical reaction to American soprano Nicole Cabell’s ravishing singing, whether from operatic, concert or recital stages worldwide. Indeed, this captivating artist has taken the classical world by storm since she won the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World award in 2005.

Drawn strongly to the French vocal repertoire, Nicole – in this, her first recording for Delos – explores the world of the chanson, and its direct descendant, the mélodie: France’s answer to the German Lied, or art song. Among the finest of mélodie composers are represented: Georges Bizet, Henri Duparc, Franz Liszt and Maurice Ravel.

Nicole’s rich, silky smooth voice and beautifully nuanced interpretations are supported with sensitivity and elegance by pianist Craig Terry.
