Descripción del producto

Graham Johnson is simply the greatest living authority on French song; an artist whose innate feeling for the music is combined with prodigious scholarship. He also has the ability to discover and nurture singers who here prove to be matchless performers of this repertoire. Following his many wonderful recordings in Hyperion's French Song Edition, Johnson turns to the complete songs of Francis Poulenc, released also to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the composer's death. Each of the four CDs presents a programme of songs in an order that is chronological for that disc alonesignifying four different journeys through the composer's career. Disc 1 features a substantial appearance, recorded in 1977, of Pierre Bernac (Poulenc's long-term collaborator)narrating L'histoire de Babar, a story known to children throughout the world. The singers include Dame Felicity Lott, acclaimed as one of the foremost performers of Poulenc, and many other stars from previous recordings.


As Graham Johnson points out in the superb notes to a set he has supervised so carefully and accompanies so perceptively, this is at least the fourth complete recording of Francis Poulenc's songs. Its appearance marks the year's 50th anniversary of the composer's death, and also pre-empts the completion of another survey, on Signum, which still has two discs to go. Johnson has arranged the 150-odd songs thematically rather than chronologically across the four discs. Settings of Paul Eluard, whose poetry was at the emotional heart of Poulenc's songwriting, dominate the second volume its title, Main Dominée par le Coeur, is a line from one of them while texts by Apollinaire make up the bulk of the third, Parisiana. The Eluard sequence contains many of Poulenc's greatest songs; Johnson calls the best known of them, the cycle Tel Jour, Telle Nuit, his "watershed work". The depths they explore are worlds away from the brittle, facetious surfaces of Poulenc's early orchestral and instrumental music. Even the genre pieces, like the delicious waltz setting of Jean Anouilh's Les Chemins de l'Amour and the "monologue" composed for Denise Duval, La Dame de Monte Carlo, are always more than just empty party turns. As always, Johnson matches singers to songs meticulously. There are some outstanding performances: Christopher Maltman's account of Miroirs Brulants and La Fraicheur et le Feu (both based on Eluard), and the Calligrammes (on Apollinaire's texts) are worth the price on their own, while Sarah Fox is just as persuasive in Les Chemins de l'Amour as she is in Tel Jour, Telle Nuit. There are telling contributions, too, from Ailish Tynan, Susan Bickley and Ben Johnson, and a brief appearance in the Quatre Chansons pour Enfants by the English grande dame of French song Felicity Lott. Touchingly, one work also features the voice of baritone Pierre Bernac, Poulenc's recital partner, for whom many of the songs were composed; he's the narrator in a 1977 recording of L'Histoire de Babar and the whole set is dedicated to his memory. It's a gorgeous collection, and for sometime Poulenc sceptics like me, a real revelation. ***** --Guardian, 17/10/13

This really is a multifaceted release: the blending of the art forms that was characteristic of Poulenc's time, where poets were absorbed by painters, and composers by poets,alongside the 15 singers gathered on these discs, together with the chameleon-like nature of Poulenc's own genius, all make for an enterprise of dazzling complexity. --IRR, Dec'13

Diving into this four-disc anthology may look like a daunting proposition. That the experience is fascinating, moving and enjoyable is as much to do with the performances as it is to accompanist Graham Johnson's clever programming, with the songs sorted thematically into four groups and sequenced chronologically on each disc. We can appreciate more clearly just how fertile Poulenc's middle period was, and can trace the elegant unwinding of the later years. Johnson writes of Poulenc's "gentle dimuendo", and it's hard to stifle a tear at the sublime, pppp coda of the final song, Lune d'avril. Poulenc sceptics will be impressed by the composer's stylistic range, from pastiche chanson to spiky neo-classicism. Especially enjoyable is the final disc, subtitled Fancy. Soprano Susan Bickley is superb in Poulenc's early Poèmes de Ronsard sparky settings of Renaissance poetry, and Ashley Riches has fun with the better-known Chansons Gaillardes. The Huit Chansons Polonaises, sung by Agnieszka Adamczak, pay oblique homage to Poulenc's beloved Chopin. There's not a weak link among the vocal cast, and there's even a cameo from the great Felicity Lott. A wonderful bonus is the inclusion of a 1970s BBC taping of Babar, narrated with impeccable grace and wit by Poulenc's long-time recital partner Pierre Bernac. Johnson's accessible, comprehensive notes deserve to be published in book form, and Hyperion generously provide full texts and translations. These songs will comfort the most jaded of palates, and this box set contains enough riches to sustain a lifetime's listening. In Johnson's words, Poulenc's music has seemed dark and joyous, accessible and remote, imperishable yet infinitely fragile, and now it is in the hands of a younger generation. --ArtsDesk, Dec'13
