Sandrine Piau & David Kadouch - Voyage intime - The Arts Desk

This is a glorious collaboration, and a wonderful record. If it doesn’t pick up some awards, it will probably only be because Sandrine Piau’s releases, particularly of baroque repertoire, tend to win so many of them anyway.

Perhaps the most jaw-droppingly effective section in pacing, flow and sheer attention of both singer and pianist to the detail of every nuance from beginning to end, are three Baudelaire settings by Debussy from the late 1880’s.

In truth, however, there are delights throughout this recital.
