About

‘This “Romance” CD contains a selection of popular tunes and encores that I am often asked to perform in my concerts. I have been incredibly lucky to perform all over the world, hence the inclusion of popular songs in Chinese, Japanese and Korean. My accompanist on this record is my soul-mate – the sensitive and excellent pianist Adrian Farmer – with whom I have shared many happy hours of music-making all over the world, including those we have experienced in the recording studio together.

‘Some composers – Mendelssohn, Poulenc and Hahn – have particular connections to my family, as of course does my ancestor Mathilde de Rothschild. Other songs have been with me all my life, I learnt Brahms’s
Vergebliches Ständchen long ago while a student in Salzburg. The remainder, particularly Handel’s Lascia ch’io pianga, Schubert’s Ave Maria and JJ Niles’s I wonder as I wander are included simply because of their immediate and timeless ability to touch the heart of a listener.’
– Charlotte de Rothschild
