Summary
Together with Malcom Martineau on the piano, the mezzo-soprano Susan Graham features a fascinating compilation of well-known French composers. Alfred Bachelet, Henri Duparc, Maurice Ravel, Camille Saint-Saëns, André Caplet, Albert Roussel, Arthur Honegger... These are names seldom heard all together in recital programs. Generally, famous opera arias or German Lieder are given a preference over melodies. However, the pieces presented here highlight a typically French musical tradition which is full of masterpieces thanks to the great literary value of the poems set to music, the vocal skills required, and the harmonies, very specific of the 20th century. Susan Graham performs those French compositions, including the joyfully morbid Danse macabre foreshadowing the 1920's and the music by The Six, which the French heroin Bérénice in Aragon's novel judges "comical."
