To read

Melancholy lyricism here, passionate rage there, all interspersed with romantic poetry. Supported by Adam Laloum's keyboard, Lise Berthaud's bow makes the link between Schumann's Märchenbilder, as dreamy as it is impetuous, and Brahms's Opus 91, all wave-like with a golden soul. The violist finds her place in the four aces which she forms with Pierre Fouchenneret, Sarah Nemtanu and François Salque to give body to the tumultuous Concert that Ernest Chausson composed with Eugène Ysaÿe in mind. More dark colours in Chanson Perpétuelle with symbolist ulterior motives, where Lucile Richardot evokes the memory of happy love.
