Canteloube:

Songs of the Auvergne (selection)

La Pastrouletta è lou chibalie; Lo Fiolairé; Pour l’enfant; Chut, chut; Pastorale; Obal, din lo coumbèlo; Postouro, sé tu m’aymo & Tè, l’co tè; Hé! Beyla-z-y dau fé!

Triptyque

Chants de France (Selection)

Auprès de ma blonde; Où irai-je me plaindre?; Au prè de la rose; Délicieuses cimes; Réveillez-vous! & D’où venez-vous fillette


“In her second volume, including 'Chut, Chut' and 'Lo Fiolairé', Véronique Gens does more than confirm her credentials. The voice is bright, forward, notably clear in diction and lightly responsive to nuance, backed by prominent woodwind and lean strings.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2007 ****

“For her second CD devoted to Joseph Canteloube's vocal music, Véronique Gens has looked beyond the celebrated, much-recorded Chants d'Auvergne, and back to Tryptique, composed in 1913. A setting of three poems by Roger Frêne, its lush, not to say extravagant orchestration anticipates Canteloube's later folksong settings. The first section, "Offrande à l'été" is an ardent love song... The central "Lunaire" has a more mysterious, yearning feel... The finale, "Hymne dans l'aurore" is an ecstatic prayer to Pan, celebrating every wonder of... The final cry, "Mon âme s'ouvre ainsi qu'une aube étincellante! O Pan!" is marked in the score crescendo en grandissant, and Gens, Serge Baudo and the Lille Orchestra rise to the moment with splendid force.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2007

“For her second CD devoted to Joseph Canteloube's vocal music, Véronique Gens has looked beyond the celebrated, much-recorded Chantsd'Auvergne, and back to Tryptique, composed in 1913. Canteloube dedicated this to Maggie Teyte but the First World War interrupted its progress, and it was not until 1923 that Jane Campredon gave the premiere, with the Colonne orchestra conducted by Gabriel Pierné.
A setting of three poems by Roger Frêne, its lush, not to say extravagant orchestration anticipates Canteloube's later folksong settings. The influence of both Ravel and Debussy is obvious, maybe also Stravinsky (it was, after all, the year of The Rite of Spring). The first section, 'Offrande à l'été' is an ardent love song, with some pretty giddy scoring for harps. The central 'Lunaire' has a more mysterious, yearning feel, with a lovely little dissonance at the word 'cendre', as the poet imagines the leaves turning to ash. The finale, 'Hymne dans l'aurore' is an ecstatic prayer to Pan, celebrating every wonder of nature. The final cry, 'Mon âme s'ouvre ainsi qu'une aube étincellante! O Pan!' is marked in the score crescendo en grandissant, and Gens, Serge Baudo and the Lille orchestra rise to the moment with splendid force. It is really surprising that this work has not become better known; any soprano wanting to look beyond the obvious repertory should welcome it.
The rest of the disc is taken up with those remaining Auvergne songs not included on the earlier issue, conducted by Jean-Claude Casadesus.
Once again, Gens proves that an authentic knowledge of the dialect is a great advantage.
The much later group from Chants de France makes a pleasant end to the recital, but it is Tryptique that has to be heard.”

Canteloube: Songs of the Auvergne (selection)


“[Véronique Gens’] singing is smooth and delicate, with plenty of body in the tone for some of the earthier movements…and the Lille Orchestra bring out all the little details in the score…This will no doubt become the interpretation for the present decade. It deserves to be a success, and then maybe the same forces will let us hear some of Canteloube’s enormous body of other songs.” Gramophone

“Each decade finds its favourite soloist for the Chants d'Auvergne: in the 1960s it was Natania Devrath, the 70s had Victoria de los Angeles, the 80s Kiri Te Kanawa, the 90s Dawn Upshaw.
They weren't French, whereas Véronique Gens is quite at home in the dialect, as she comes from the Auvergne. Her singing is smooth and delicate, with plenty of body in the tone for some of the earthier moments.
In all, five volumes of Auvergne songs were published between 1923-54. Each singer naturally includes 'Baïlèro', the most famous, and Gens doesn't disappoint in this. The 20 other songs range from the sad 'Uno jionto postouro', the lament of the girl whose lover has deserted her, to 'Malurous qu'o ono Fenno', the jaunty exposé of unhappy couples.
Jean-Claude Casadesus and the Lille Orchestra bring out all the little details in the score, such as the lovely woodwind solos that link the three Bourrées. Perhaps this will become the interpretation for the present decade.”

The Erato label flourished from the early 1950s. It is defined both by its discerningly chosen repertoire and by the high quality of its artists — brilliant instrumentalists including Marie-Claire Alain (organ), Maurice André (trumpet), Lily Laskine (harp), Jean-Pierre Rampal (flute), Hélène Grimaud (piano) and outstanding and sympathetic conductors such as Jean-François Paillard, Claudio Scimone, Michel Corboz, John Eliot Gardiner, Marc Minkowski, Ton Koopman and William Christie. Together they recorded a rich catalogue of Baroque — particularly French Baroque — music.

Erato’s second priority was contemporary music, especially that by French composers. No label has better or so faithfully served this repertoire, and this 50-CD edition includes some of its greatest treasures — Maurice Duruflé conducting his Requiem; Pierre Boulez conducting Le Visage nuptial and Le Soleil des eaux, and Stravinsky’s Pulcinella; Yvonne Loriod, Boulez and Marius Constant performing Messiaen; Messiaen playing his own Méditations sur le mystère de la Sainte Trinité; and Darius Milhaud conducting two of his symphonies.
