Description: This interesting recital collects French mélodies dealing with the existential crisis of the end of the 19th century as artists expressed the malaise of mankind in the face of an unimaginably fast Progress. To quote the booklet, the songs deploy “onirism, darkness, but also cynicism, provocation and humour.” Great idea. Now, if only the booklet deployed English translations. French texts. Sarah Laulan (contralto), Maciej Pikulski (piano).
