Isabelle Aboulker – ‘mélodies • songs’

en français and in English

Julia Kogan soprano
Isabelle Aboulker piano

This new landmark recording features the work of France’s greatest living art song composer, Isabelle Aboulker, as she turns 80. Though a legend in France, the language barrier has largely kept her from the Anglophone world, until now – new English translations by Timothy Adès have been recorded by Julia Kogan with the composer at the piano, alongside the original French versions.
