Fauré: Complete Songs - Volume 2 (1884-1919), High Voice
Composer: Gabriel Fauré.
Numbering more than 100 in total, and composed across a 60 year period, Gabriel Faure's songs form the single most influential contribution to the field of French art songs. Despite their importance, the songs have long been riddled with misprints and inconsistencies. This first complete critical edition is based on studies of hundreds of manuscripts and printed sources, along with evidence and interpretative advice from artists who worked with Faure. Above all, it is a practical edition, informed by extensive work with musicians in performance, masterclasses and workshops. This second volume comprises 33 songs of Faure's creative maturity, including popular favorites Les Roses d'Ispahan and Clair de lune, alongside some lesser-known gems, together with his three vocal duets and the delightful four-voice madrigal. This Urtext edition includes piano accompaniments as well as online audio accompaniment tracks.
