American lyric soprano Nicole Cabell's 2007 solo debut album was named Editor’s Choice by Gramophone and received an incredible amount of critical acclaim and several prestigious awards. Drawn strongly to the French vocal repertoire, on this 2014 release Cabell explores the world of the chanson, and its direct descendant, the mélodie: France’s answer to the German lied, or art song. The finest of mélodie composers are represented on this collection: Georges Bizet, Henri Duparc, Franz Liszt and Maurice Ravel. Cabell's rich, silky-smooth voice and beautifully nuanced interpretations are supported with sensitivity and elegance by pianist Craig Terry.
