An appreciative nod to soprano Sandrine Piau and pianist Susan Manoff, whose recital Chimère, is an exploration, through song, of dreams. I give Piau and Manoffequal billing, as this is more than a soprano and her accompanist. Their contributions are matched, even down to the interesting CD booklet. Piau provides a delicate tone that belies a certain tensile strength, and Manoff’s playing brings out colours and textures beyond mere support. Their programme, ranging from Schumann through Debussy to Previn, is judiciously chosen and beautifully executed.
