The sixteen lullabies – or berceuses – that pianist Bertrand Chamayou has chosen for Good Night! form a captivatingly varied album. His programme embraces a diversity of eras and musical cultures: Chopin, Liszt, Grieg and, of course, Brahms through Balakirev, Lyapunov, Alkan, Bonis, Busoni, Janáček, Martinů and Villa-Lobos to Helmut Lachenmann and a world premiere, Bryce Dessner’s Song for Octave. “The lullaby’s place is halfway between dream and reality,” says Chamayou, “There is that special moment as you are falling asleep and you experience all kinds of emotions.” A satisfying recital that will also enrich digital playlists, Good Night! has been recorded in Dolby Atmos immersive sound.
