Henry Thacker "Harry" Burleigh — Five Songs on Poems by Laurence Hope
Reynaldo Hahn — Selected works (Mélodies TBA)
Traditional — Selected works (Caribbean folk & calypso songs)
Soprano Jeanine De Bique has performed on the world's most prestigious operatic stages, including Opéra National de Paris, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and the Royal Opera House in London. Her 2021 recording, Mirrors, with Concerto Köln earned the Opus Klassik Award and Edison Klassiek Award, as well as Gramophone's Editor’s Choice Award.
De Bique makes her Phillips-debut with pianist Warren Jones for a varied song recital that features Benjamin Britten's Les Illuminations, based on a collection of poems by French poet Arthur Rimbaud. De Bique also performs Henry Thacker Burleigh's Five Songs on Poems by Laurence Hope, drawn from a collection of poems by English poet Adela Florence Nicolson (who wrote under the pseudonym Laurence Hope to gain acceptance in 19th-century England). De Bique completes the program with mélodies by Reynaldo Hahn and a selection of Caribbean folk and calypso songs, reflecting her recent exploration of the music of her native Trinidad and Tobago.
