About

Sabine Devieilhe and Alexandre Tharaud bring their customary clarity, finesse and insight to the works of four composers who defined the path of French art song or mélodie from the late 19th to the mid-20th century. In an imaginatively balanced recital, the two French luminaries perform Fauré, Debussy, Ravel and Poulenc. Their programme, built around Ravel’s Cinq Chansons populaires grecques and Debussy’s Verlaine setting Ariettes oubliées, takes up the themes of love, war and death and offers both favourite songs like Fauré’s ‘Après un rêve’ and some rarer treasures.

Reviews

It is a joy to hear these 29 mélodies sung so well, with superb French diction, especially in the patter of Poulenc’s ‘Fêtes galantes’, which Devieilhe rattles off with aplomb, and the almost-spoken ‘Sur l’herbe’ by Ravel. ... this is a highly recommendable disc and I’d welcome more mélodies – particularly Fauré – from these accomplished French performers.  Mark Pullinger
