Lyric artist of the year at the Victoires de la musique in 2011 and 2016, mezzo-soprano Karine Deshayes has been acclaimed throughout the world for her lyric performances. Here she joins the Debussy string quartet in a programme that includes Mozart arias and Schubert lieder, a dialogue between voice and strings in exquisite arrangements by the Debussy string quartet, bringing back the intimate spirit of the Viennese music salons.
