Reviews

‘Jacques Jansen uses the text in such an intimate way that one feels this telling of a single love is directed just at the single listener. His Pelléas-like speech-song delivery … and Jacqueline Bonneau’s pellucid playing, make it a likeable and memorable reading.’ Alan Blyth, Song on Record 2 (CUP: 1988) (Chabrier, L’île heureuse)
