(Piano). Francis Poulenc (1899-1963) was one of the great French composers for piano, following in the tradition of Debussy and Ravel. Contents: Valse * Valse-Improvisation sur le nom de Bach * Villageoises, Petites pieces enfantines * Humoresque * Bourree, au Pavillon d'Auvergne * and more.
English soprano Felicity Lott performs this premier recording of Poulenc's one-act opera for one character, based on Jean Cocteau's 1930 play. The story revolves around one woman speaking on the telephone with her (invisible and inaudible) departing lover, who is leaving her to marry another woman.
Many of Francis Poulenc's songs are verses by 20th-century French poets set to music, and this diary is an answer to what the composer felt were frequent misinterpretations of his work. To set the record straight, Poulenc describes the origins of each song, comments on performances, offers guidelines for interpretation of his work, and discusses his methods for arranging vocal music. In this new edition of the diary, the original French text and the English translation appear on facing pages, and a bibliography, a discography, and extensive notes are included.
