Aimer et mourir
Ravel & Duparc:
Aimer et mourir - Dances et mélodies
Magdalena Kožená / mezzo-soprano
Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin
Robin Ticciati / conductor
- Linn Records
This second all-French programme for Linn Records with Robin Ticciati and Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin sees Magdalena return to perform a selection of songs by Henri Duparc alongside orchestral music by his fellow countryman Maurice Ravel. Duparc’s mélodies, which Ravel himself described as 'works of genius', sound particularly opulent in their orchestral scoring; the warm tones of Magdalena´s ravishing voice provide a perfect match.
