About

Pianist Malcolm Martineau brings together some of the UK’s finest singers for the second release in a new series charting the complete songs of French composer Gabriel Fauré.

This series follows Martineau’s well-received series of The Complete Poulenc Songs.

“The real revelation, though, comes from the American baritone John Chest... his high mezza voce is remarkable – with deep commitment, flawless phrasing and an easy warmth of tone... Martineau’s playing, beautiful and fastidiously detailed, is, of course, the unifying factor: few have quite such an innate understanding of the way in which the smallest gestures of colour and nuance expose the depths of emotion in Fauré’s work. It all forms a most engaging start to the series” – Gramophone Magazine, October 2016 (SIGCD427 Fauré Vol.1)

Reviews

The second instalment of Malcolm Martineau’s survey of Fauré’s songs is exceptionally beautiful, both in choice of material and quality of performance. ... The remaining singers are all familiar from the first disc. There’s accomplished duetting from Janis Kelly and Lorna Anderson: elsewhere, Kelly’s ability to sustain high, hovering lines is heard to advantage in the exquisite ‘Le pays des rêves’, while Anderson, with her warm middle registers, does wonders with the reflective ‘Le secret’. John Chest, whose singing was a real revelation in Vol 1, is similarly excellent here. ... Martineau’s understanding of Fauré’s piano-writing, in which less means more and virtuosity is avoided in favour of nuance, remains impeccable.  Tim Ashley
