(France) Mémoire Vive 262018, from Live Radio Performances, 1957 & 1959.

"This disc is part of a series by which the INA means to remind the world of the greatness of some unjustly forgotten French artists; it has already offered recitals by the soprano Suzanne Danco, the mezzo Irma Kolassi, and the baritone Bernard Kruysen. It has certainly changed my mind about Paul Derenne....a supreme musician who is always mindful that this task is to illuminate a text....The readings of the two Satie numbers, Roussel's 'Jazz dans la nuit,' and especially the Ravel cycle, are revelations."
