Gabriel Faure by Gabriel Faure
Book DescriptionThe elegantly expressive songs in this volume are among the finest works of the composer generally regarded as the greatest master of the French song. Gabriel Faure wrote then between 1861 and 1904, and gathered them into three collections, all reprinted here from authoritative French editions originally prepared for medium voice.Set to texts by such distinguished writers as Victor Hugo, Theophile Gautier, Charles Baudelaire, Paulk Verlaine, and Jean Richepin, the songs reflect the subtle refinement of Faure's creative sensibilities and the conviction he could bring to a broad range of moods. Included here are such well-known works as "Clair de lune," "Apres un reve," and "Les roses d'Ispahan," along with such touching masterpieces as "Chanson de pecheur" and "L'absent," and the emotionally charged "Le voyageur" and "Automne."In these exquisite compositions, among the most frequently performed and recorded songs today, singers will discover the strikingly individual textures, melodies, and harmonies with which Faure forged a musical style that bridged late-Romantic and 20th-century musical idioms, and deeply influenced a generation of composers."
