Description: Many of these were composed for performance in fashionable salons but they are far from "salon romances". The sharpness of Meyerbeer's response to the texts, the formal simplicity of the songs, his rich melodic gift, elegant sense of rhythm and affecting harmonies mark these out more as serious mélodies and Lieder while the Italian group ranges from the early (1810) canzonette, light and playful, to a couple with the intensity and drama of short operatic scene. Texts and translations available on-line. Sivan Rotem (soprano), Jonathan Zak (piano).
