NOCTURNES, Zig-Zag Territoires | Outhere Music 2015

Rupert Charlesworth – tenor & Edwige Herchenroder – piano


Since the dawn of time, night and its mysteries have inspired poets and musicians. This recital for voice and piano recalls that: it is presented as a nocturnal promenade through diverse aesthetics, troubling atmospheres and profoundly contrasting emotions. The programme features the known (Schubert, Brahms, Fauré) and the lesser known (Bax, Finzi or Berkeley) to form a fascinating ode to the night.

‘Herchenroder’s disciplined playing shows a well-judged touch. She illuminates the harmonic shifts in the program’s three Schubert lieder with clarity and grace — as good an indicator of quality as any — and shows excellent timing in the long lines of Brahms’s “Der Gang zum Liebchen.’ David Shengold, New York Opera News Disc Nocturnes September 2015

Edwige Herchenroder’s accompaniments are well recorded and she makes the most of the nocturnal scene-painting, like the disappearing gleam in an empty sky that forms a postlude to Finzi’s ‘The Comet at Yell’ham’. A nice disc for late-night listening’ Richard Fairman, Gramophone Magazine Disc Nocturnes April 2015

‘On est conquis par la délicatesse et la magnifique sonorité de Herchenroder (The Comet at Yell’ham de Finzi, l’Heure exquise de Hahn), sa pédalisation subtile, la légèreté sans sécheresse de son staccato (Carry her over the water de Berkeley, An die Laute de Schubert).’ Diapason, Disque Nocturnes
