The first song "If I had wings" to be followed by another 125. He writes: "I do not likeless literature than music, painting as poetry, a landscape than a page of Chateaubriand, a Poussin that ouverure Don Juna". That's a good reason for thecurrent re-emergence of this composer too long muffled in the single label "manlounges, too expensive friend of Proust, biting humor dandy".
After the discovery of hisorchestral and chamber music, here is a first volume of tunes mostly unrecorded to date and that reach almost all the small masterpiece, the cycle "The leaves injured" inthe music scene "Medusa" or the pages of the film "La Dame aux Camelias" throughhis English songs. Didier Henry (baritone), Catherine Dune (soprano), StéphanePetitjean (piano) we discover, with talent, a composer who is solely that of "Chives".DDD 65:25 / Booklet-French-German
