description

In French they’re called Berceuses, in German: Wiegenlied, in English: Lullaby and in Italian: Ninnananna.
The oldest example included in this recording “Le Dodo ou L’amour au berceau” is a piece which could easily belong to the prehistory of the genre and it’s taken from the Fifteenth Ordre for harpsichord by François Couperin. Published in 1722, this piece uses the same lullaby melody that lies at the heart of Debussy’s “Jardin sous la pluie” almost two hundred years later. The CD explores the history of the berceuse genre: proceeding in chronological order, we encounter the beautiful pieces by Chopin (who, by writing his Berceuse in 1844, did, in fact, invent a genre), Schumann, von Henselt, Liszt, Raff, Alkan, Brahms/Cortot, Grieg, Cˇajkovskij/Rachmaninov, Feruccio Busoni, Sibelius, Balakirev and Debussy. The collection of berceuses presented in this CD (of course incomplete) concludes with the Vingt regards sur l’Enfant-Jésus by Olivier Messiaen.
