About

Marie-Nicole Lemieux’s sixth recital recording on Naïve is a series of breath-taking melodies from the last decade of the 19th century - “a pivotal era that was incredibly rich and varied – and I believe this programme provides an accurate portrait of it”, Marie-Nicole Lemieux said.

These were the peak years of French mélodie: we hear Fauré – the Mélodies de Venise were among his first successes; Koechlin, who is very little known today but who was very forward-looking in his orchestration and harmony; and Chausson and Lekeu as well. The composers I’ve assembled are all linked with chamber and instrumental music: it’s that intimate side that interests me, which explains the choice of Wolf rather than Strauss. In the end, the programme is a wide-ranging journey through late 19th-century Europe, illustrated by songs that I love, that I listen to myself. I like the variety of mood you get in a programme of this sort. You don’t sing Rachmaninov the same way you sing Fauré – especially the texts by Verlaine, which I adore and which for me are the poems that best lend themselves to singing. I wanted to emphasise the genuinely embodied, physical side of the sensuality in Fauré.”
