Scottish pianist Malcolm Martineau is recognized as one of the leading accompanists of his generation. The second volume of this series charting the complete songs of French composer Gabriel Fauré brings together some of the UK’s finest singers; nine carefully chosen soloists who each lend their own personal imprint to the material, highlighting Martineau’s sensitivity.

Another lovely evening in an imaginary salon…a plurality of voices evokes a gathering of friends taking turns…At the heart of the disc, Lorna Anderson’s stillness in Le secret is utterly entrancing, and Janis Kelly glides effortlessly in Le pays de rêves…Connolly is at her best, capturing the controlled, yet rapturous passion of [La chanson d’Eve]. ~ BBC Music Magazine December 2017

The second instalment of Malcolm Martineau’s survey of Fauré’s songs is exceptionally beautiful, both in choice of material and quality of performance…Martineau’s understanding of Fauré’s piano-writing, in which less means more and virtuosity is avoided in favour of nuance, remains impeccable. ~ Gramophone Magazine July 2017

The words and the music are marvellously well interwoven, and Sarah Connolly sings the cycle with the utmost sensitivity. ~ MusicWeb International October 2017

The pleasure in this series is the rich variety of singers… which creates the atmosphere of a recital among friends…with Malcolm Martineau ever an authoritative, agile and responsive pianist. ~ The Observer
