An Aria A Day #66

‘L’heure exquise’
by Reynaldo Hahn
Piano Narelle French

13th July, 2020

Based on a poem by the French writer Paul Verlaine, ‘L’heure exquise (The exquisite hour)’ is one of Reynaldo Hahn’s best known songs. The composer perfectly captures the image of a moon-drenched evening when lovers come together to share ‘the exquisite hour’, a scene vividly brought to life by the beautiful voice of soprano Katie Rutledge.
