Isotopia Records is pleased to present to you a reimagined "Les Chemins de L'Amour". Constance Hauman transforms the legendary art song by Francis Poulenc with an imaginative, dramatic Pop arrangement. Written in 1940 on the eve of German occupation of Paris during WWII, "Les Chemins de L'Amour" was popularized by the legendary Jessye Norman. Hauman gives the song, sung entirely in French, a passion which evaporates the language barrier. Schwabische explains it perfectly when writing that her "vocals poignantly communicate intense feelings which most of us lack the words to express". 

July 4th celebrates U.S. Independence while across the pond in France, July 14th – known as Bastille Day – celebrates the passion of the people. Happy Bastille Day!

 

Passion from the Press

"Constance Hauman's perfect daring rendition of Poulenc's Chemin de L'Amour, reveals this classic art song to translate easily into a pop crossover classic you will want to listen to on repeat, with a glass of red wine, in front of a fire. If not to remember one's own great love affair, the one you wish you could still have in Paris." 

 – City Guide Rhein – Neckar  

 

"Chemins de l'Amour from Constance Hauman's High Tides takes the listener on a timeless journey of lost passionate love as well as creates a perfect soundtrack for any romantic movie set in Paris."

 – Schwabische

 

"But who is Constance Hauman, who dedicates her album to "love, the past, the present and the future" and provides each song with quotations from Friedrich Nietzsche to Albert Camus or even Yoko Ono and Arthur Miller as well as Paul Tillich? Naturally, Constance Hauman is a classic opera singer, but at the same time a pianist, actress, composer and producer – also unmissable on this album . A true universal talent whose career began in major international concert halls, theaters, cinemas and opera houses, but not on pop or rock stages.  So now she turns to the sophisticated pop with high-quality songwriting lyrics, which she implements in addition to the piano primarily along with very orchestral electronic pop production and unique ambient sound fabric on her album High Tides. A perfect example is how beautiful a vintage art song from the 1940's, Francis Poulenc's Les Chemins de l'Amour can sound from her, which she and co producer/drummer Ross Pederson pack into lush electronic pop production with an ominous beat, creating devout admiration as well for her gorgeous singing and phrasing."
