Description: And even more rare material here: the nine-minute cantata La mort du nombre from 1930, whose opposition between "Fear" (the tenor and the piano) and "Hope" (the soprano and the violin) bathes in a Debussian Impressionism also with influences of Massenet. It reaches a sublime, ecstatic conclusion which looks forward in spirit, if not in style, to his mature works inspired by his beloved Catholicism. French-English texts. Suzie Leblanc (soprano), Lawrence Wiliford (tenor), Laura Andriani (violin), Robert Kortgaard (piano).
