Oh boy, I like this one! Lotte has a light sensual voice, doesn't have all that throat'ishness' serioso as the Pierrots I've heard; It isn't just the speechsong that ruins it for me, but the severity, a lack of playfulness. Shaefer sounds playful on the dg cd, (The dvd version sounds abit too taboo though, even for me maybe, but I doubt it). There is another french sounding version I'd heard a snippet of on encarta 95/96 way way back, it was that under 20 second microbreif piece. I've compaired almost all possiblities from the Harmonia Mundi and old Boulez, I simply can't find that particular take anywhere on disc! I'll have to buy the old old software and see exactly what performance it is.
