Description: 64 minutes of piano "mood pieces" make up the vast majority of this disc of Flemish Romanticism tinged now and then with Impressionism. One might say that the Flemish soul is mirrored in these predominantly introspective and nostalgic pieces most of which date from the 1920s but several of which are as late as the early 1940s. Flemish-English texts. Peter Vanhove (piano), Yuriy Mynenko (countertenor).
