Berceuse in French, Wiegenlied in German, Lullaby in English, and Ninnananna in Italian.
The review of Berceuses offered on this CD opens with a piece that may well be called the prehistory of the genre, Le Dodo ou L’amour au berceau, from François Couperin’s fifteenth Ordre for harpsichord, published in 1722, (in which the same lullaby melody resonates that almost two hundred years later will enliven the Debussian Jardin sous la pluie); it passes, and lingers, through the nineteenth century – Chopin, Schumann, von Henselt, Liszt, Raff, Alkan, Brahms/Cortot, Grieg, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov; it passes through the twentieth century with Feruccio Busoni, Sibelius, Balakirev, Debussy precisely – and in the twentieth century it concludes with one of Olivier Messiaen’s Vingt regards sur l’Enfant-Jésus.
