Thoughts Observed

After exploring the music of his Sephardic ancestry on the acclaimed recording Latino Ladino (Naxos 8.57366), Yaniv d’Or, accompanied by Dan Deutsch, brings a refreshing perspective to the Dichterliebe from Schumann’s proverbial ‘year of song.’ French songs of the 19th and 20th centuries offer d’Or’s exotic voice further dimensions in the floating harmonies of the young Duparc and Debussy, including Reynaldo Hahn’s beautiful Bach pastiche, and concluding with the classical simplicity of Poulenc’s first songs. 

Schumann – Dichterliebe, op.48
Duparc – L'Invitation au voyage
Hahn – À Chloris
Debussy – Beau Soir | Romance | Mandolin | Nuit d’Étoiles
Poulenc – Le Bestiaire | C’est ainsi que tu es | Priez pour Paix | Vous n’écrivez plus
