A British Promenade




As the title of her new disc British Promenade suggests it, the harpist Sandrine Chatron takes us on a musical wandering in the early 20th England. Along the journey, we meet little known artists, such as Herbert Howells or Cyril Scott, but also the famous Benjamin Britten. Their scores for harp carry us to England, among coastal views and bucolic landscapes. The lyricism of Ophélie Gaillard's cello and the warmth of Michael Bennett's tenor voice enhance the evocative power of the music and complete the pointillist qualities of the harp.


In the press

Sandrine Chatron, maîtresse du son et des climats de ces pages, se révèle l'interprète idéale de cet enregistrement rare et très recommandable.

[Ces pièces] ouvrent à un monde singulier, entre falaise venteuse et salon confiné, défendu par des artistes de premier plan.

Un petit trésor. Musikzen

Un disque rare. À ne pas manquer !
