Debussy, Fauré, Satie and Dove: Songs and Vexations

Following a concert at the Purcell Room in March 2018 including a new composition by Jonathon Dove (“Letters from Claude” commissioned by RTF), we recorded soprano Claire Booth, mezzo Sue Bickley and pianist Andrew Matthews-Owen in Monmouth in late May 2018.  Released in March 2019, the record reached the top 10 of the Classical Music charts.
“A careful and astute selection of some wonderful songs by Debussy and those around him, clustered around an eminently enjoyable new commission from Jonathan Dove” (Gramophone, April 2019)  “Beautifully curated”  (BBC Music Magazine, June 2019) “Highly recommended”  (Music Web) “a lovely collection of French chansons…intelligently organized program in a series of fine performances” (Fanfare, July 2019)
