About

Composing over 150 works for piano and voice over a period of 44 years, the songs of Francis Poulenc remain consistently popular to concert audiences the world over. Varying in their individual style and character in a way that defies generalization, Poulenc set music to a wide range of different French poetry both ancient and modern, and from the serious to the surreal.

The final disc in Signum's series of 'The Complete Songs of Francis Poulenc' features a cast of the finest singers of our generation, accompanied by Malcolm Martineau as well as additional instrumental soloists for Poulenc's larger-ensemble settings of his songs.
