The French composer Ange Flégier (1846–1927) enjoyed considerable fame in his own time but has now been completely lost from view. The extraordinary reception of his song Le Cor (1881) – Chaliapin was one of many prominent basses to record it – points to the predominant place held by the mélodie in his catalogue of more than 350 works. Flégier’s songs, composed for his colleagues at the Opéra de Paris, are large-scale and orchestrally conceived, sitting stylistically closer to Duparc in their dignified drama. Many of them receive their first recordings or first modern recordings here.
