Tessa Souter’s fourth CD and second for Motéma Music, the London-born Anglo-Trinidadian New Yorker assembles a dozen classical melodies by composers such as Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, and Chopin. On the album’s title track, Souter draws from Chopin’s Prelude in E Minor (which in 1963 also inspired Antonio Carlos Jobim’s “Insensatez”) and pens her own lyrics on this romantic ballad.
