With Delta y Mar, he returns to an accomplice going back ten years, the prodigious guitarist Vicente Bögeholz, unveiling written compositions nurtured by their Latin and European influences.

She recorded the album while she was pregnant with her first child. "I felt powerful," she says. "I wasn't puffing, I wasn't drinking wine, I was just singing."

“The most important thing is to play on a good instrument”, Antonii Baryshevskyi confided to Ukrainian journalist Olha Kizlova in an interview given in 2013. “Furthermore, you need truly good schooling – an environment that allows for music education. Our [Ukrainian] piano culture is based on the teaching of [Heinrich] Neuhaus, who paid special attention to timbre and tone quality. Sonority is extremely important for an interpreter – something I’ve been working on for a long time.”

Max Bruch’s compositions shine the last lights of German romanticism. Following in the footsteps of Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms, Bruch persisted in defending a melodic line inspired by popular culture, “one can only hope in these times that are hostile to melody”.

After a number of appearances in Alpha productions, Sandrine Piau now joins the label for several recordings. With Chimère, she invites us on a voyage into the intimate and infinite territory of dreams. ‘Chimera: an illusory, unsatisfied quest, the graveyard of our illusions…’ She and her longstanding partner, the pianist Susan Manoff, have thought up a programme combining the German lied, Mélodies by Debussy and Poulenc (his Banalités), and Art Songs by Barber along with discoveries of more rarely heard composers like Ivor Gurney and the Dickinson Songs of André Previn – the celebrated American conductor is less well known for his compositions, which include this magnificent cycle written for Renée Fleming. Equally at home in French, German and English, Sandrine Piau is at the peak of her artistry.

For a mild-mannered man whose music was always easy on the ear, Nat King Cole managed to be a figure of considerable controversy during his 30 years as a professional musician. From the late '40s to the mid-'60s, he was a massively successful pop singer who ranked with such contemporaries as Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, and Dean Martin. He shared with those peers a career that encompassed hit records, international touring, radio and television shows, and appearances in films. But unlike them, he had not emerged from a background as a band singer in the swing era. Instead, he had spent a decade as a celebrated jazz pianist, leading his own small group. Oddly, that was one source of controversy.

Dinah Washington was at once one of the most beloved and controversial singers of the mid-20th century beloved to her fans, devotees, and fellow singers; controversial to critics who still accuse her of selling out her art to commerce and bad taste. Her principal sin, apparently, was to cultivate a distinctive vocal style that was at home in all kinds of music, be it R&B, blues, jazz, middle of the road pop and she probably would have made a fine gospel or country singer had she the time. Hers was a gritty, salty, high-pitched voice, marked by absolute clarity of diction and clipped, bluesy phrasing. Washington's personal life was turbulent, with seven marriages behind her, and her interpretations showed it, for she displayed a tough, totally unsentimental, yet still gripping hold on the universal subject of lost love. She has had a huge influence on R&B and jazz singers who have followed in her wake, notably Nancy Wilson, Esther Phillips, and Diane Schuur.
