Catalogue Number: 02P060
Description: Timpani are re-releasing this so, since it predates our time at RI, we offer it for collectors of the French mélodie. Emmanuel's modal style sets him apart from many of his colleagues and produces, with the varied added instrumental accompaniments, an unusual body of work from the breezy Odelettes of 1913 to the very emotional 1908 In Memoriam, a quasi-cantata of 16 minutes which is a dialogue between a son and his dying mother. French-English texts. Florence Katz (mezzo), Claude Lefebvre (flute), Lionel Peintre (baritone), Jan-Marc Phillips-Varjabédian (violin), Henri Demarquette (cello), Marie-Catherine Girod (piano). Original 1995 release.
