Fauré - The Complete Songs - 4
Dans un parfum de roses
“…the final volume and jewel in the crown of Hyperion's completely Fauré songs. …all the singers involved in this glorious project, while not always in their first radiance and purity of voice, never lose their sense of poetic engagement and commitment. Graham Johnson, whether writing or playing, is magically attuned to every nuance of Fauré's universe; and Hyperion's sound and presentation are impeccable.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2005

Faure: Complete Songs, Vol. 3
Pierre Mollet (baritone), Simone Gouat (piano), Renee Doria (soprano), Berthe Monmart (soprano), Jacques Dutey (baritone), Tasso Janopoulo (piano)
Fauré - Songs
A fascinating release featuring songs written between 1888 and 1904 and two separate songs from 1906. This CD covers 18 years of composition, roughly Faure’s ‘second style’, which just happened to be the radiant years for his piano catalogue.
“…a consummate partnership. …the artists can do lightness wonderfully well, helped by Beuron's superb mezza voce. Eidi's playing is beyond praise.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2009
“…Yann Beuron and Billy Eidi's… ardour and commitment are unmistakable. At once sensitive and strong they are true to a clearly beloved composer whether in the voluptuously beautiful "En sourdine" or in the heart-breaking reflection of "Prison". All lovers of a still misunderstood composer will want to add this well-recorded album to their collection.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2009

It was in 1972, when he was singing at Glyndebourne, that Cuenod began recording for Nimbus. In these records he leaves a unique and precious account of French song, which, incidentally, he taught every year in Europe and the United States. This album of Fauré and Duparc has never previously been released. Hugues Cuenod was between seventy and seventy-six at the time and the result is miraculous. Hear how skilfully he 'speaks' the text like an actor, with perfect diction and clarity. His style is admirably simple and natural, which is the most difficult thing to achieve in the very special art of the French 'mélodie'. He never descends into sentimentality or over-interpretation, temptations to which many singers of both sexes too often succumb.
