Composer Édouard Lalo's work encompassed the period of Romanticism that witnessed the evolution of the romance de salon genre into the mélodie française or French art song. It is an injustice of posterity that only Fauré, Duparc and Debussy acquired true fame in this genre. This collection from baritone Tassis Christoyannis and pianist Jeff Cohen featuring the two scènes de salon for voice and piano, the seven romances and the 23 mélodies, shows that Lalo easily stands alongside his more well-known countrymen.
