Marie-Nicole Lemieux and Daniel Blumenthal Perform Hahn's L'heure exquise

More people should study and perform the art songs of Reynaldo Hahn, some of the most charming and exquisite French mélodies in the repertoire. This performance of L'heure exquise is from mezzo soprano Marie-Nicole Lemieux and pianist Daniel Blumenthal.

  1. That is indeed exquisite. I don't think I'd heard of Reynaldo Hahn before. Can you tell me the CD? -- it's definitely going on my wish list!

  2. This is one of my favorite songs of all time :) I love it and this rendition is stunning.

    so beautiful.

    also beautiful by Hahn are his Chansons Grises and another of my favorite songs of all time: Si Mes Vers Avaient Des Ailes
