“With the larger ensemble in Chantefleurs et Chantefables, he maintained momentum despite seeming to take slower tempos than did Mr. Salonen in his 1996 recording.  It provided an ideal setting for soprano Laura Claycomb’s radiant, shimmering voice — what a magnificent instrument she has!  She used it to full effect, creating a mysterious soundscape for the various flowers, ladies, and other creatures that populate the surreal and often funny poems Lutosławski used for this score.”
