LABELS: Naxos
WORKS: Mélodies
PERFORMER: Michel Piquemal (baritone), Christine Lajarrige (piano)
CATALOGUE NO: 8.553642
The art of French singing lives on. Piquemal is direct, idiomatic, and projects his words with character. Sometimes laborious at speed and extrovert in the lyrical heartbreak of ‘C’ or ‘Hotel’, he still makes a reliable guide to a wonderful selection. Robert Maycock
