NEW CD - Poldowski

Largely neglected following her death, the music of Poldowski – alias of Irène Régine Wieniawska – is brought back to life in this re-imagining by David Jackson, director of the Paris-based chamber group Ensemble 1904.
With twenty-two settings of poems by the nineteenth-century French poet Paul Verlaine, Ensemble 1904 makes its recording debut with this alluring and compelling program of art song. Poldowski’s complete Verlaine settings are united for the first time in vivid arrangements by David Jackson inspired by the composer herself, known to have made chamber versions of her own songs. Included is the world premiere of the recently rediscovered Nous Deux.
Ensemble 1904 (David Jackson (piano & director), Angelique Charlopain (violin), Jeremie Decottignies (double bass), Jazmin Black-Grollemund (soprano)
