French composer Henri Duparc lived from 1848 till 1933, but at age 37 a mental illness made him stop composing and eventually destroy most of his output. What was left is a superb body of songs, which are still regularly performed nowadays.

Duparc is a true heir to his French ancestors César Franck, Gounod and Fauré. But his encounter with Richard Wagner left a strong mark on his musical language, especially in the instrumental sonorities and highly chromatic harmonies.

Bass Andrea Mastroni is one of the foremost young vocalists in Italy, and has performed at world famous stages such as La Scala Milano, La Fenice, Bayerische Staatsoper, Theatre de Champs‐Elysées, Opera National de Paris. He is expertly supported by pianist Mattia Ometto, a well known soloist, here in the role of a sympathetic duo partner.

Excellent liner notes by the artist in English and Italian.
