Ensemble 1904 (David Jackson (piano & director), Angelique Charlopain (violin), Jeremie Decottignies (double bass), Jazmin Black-Grollemund (soprano))
Largely neglected following her death, the music of Poldowski – alias of Irène Régine Wieniawska – is brought back to life in this re-imagining by David Jackson, director of the Paris-based chamber group Ensemble 1904.

Featuring twenty-two settings of poems by the nineteenth-century French poet Paul Verlaine, the ensemble makes its recording debut with this alluring and compelling programme of song. Poldowski’s complete Verlaine settings are united for the first time in vivid arrangements by David Jackson inspired by the composer herself, known to have made chamber versions of her own songs. Included is the world premiere of the recently rediscovered Nous Deux.

Mandoline - Poldowski Re/imagined from Ensemble 1904 on Vimeo.

'[...] the arrangements are salon-like, atmospheric and sympathetically performed, expanding the scale of the music - which 'is great-hearted enough to take it. [...] More please!'
BBC Music Magazine

'[Jackson] weaves a sheath of chamber music (violin, piano and double bass) around the velvety soprano voice of Jazmin Black-Grollemund. The result is surprising but also often enchanting to the ear'
Diapason
