Description: Caplet's mystical and religious bent didn't prevent him from being attracted by symbolist poets and those texts which he set are most akin to Debussy in their style and color. But there are several items here which are far away from Impressionism, like the La Fontaine fables which are caustic and capricious. French texts. Dominique Favat (mezzo), Line Marand (piano). 1996 release.
