Enesco – Sept Chansons de Clement Marot Op. 15; Roussel – Light, Op. 19 No. 1; Deux Melodies, Op. 20; Deus poems chinois Op. 35; Debussy – Trois chansons de Bilitis; Trois Chansons de France; Fetes Galantes (II)

An early recording of Sarah Walker in French repertoire with which she is now closely associated. A fascinating insight into the career beginnings of one of the world’s most acclaimed mezzos, in repertoire that is still under-recorded.

‘A record full of pleasant things…. Sarah Walker’s singing has its own distinction, strong-toned yet capable of a charming lightening…. The Debussy side I thought extremely fine… the production as a whole gives much pleasure.’ Gramophone
