9780754659600: Gabriel Faure: The Songs and Their Poets (Guildhall Research Studies)
Review:

'Without question, Gabriel Faure: The Songs and Their Poets ought to be on the shelves of all music libraries, singers, voice instructors, and accompanists, as it will become a frequent reference for anyone interested in French music and will be read cover-to-cover by all Faureans.' Notes

From the Publisher:

The career of Gabriel Faure as a composer of songs for voice and piano traverses six decades (1862-1921); almost the whole history of French melodie is contained within these parameters. In the 1860s Faure, the lifelong protege of Camille Saint-Saens, was a suavely precocious student; he was part of Pauline Viardot's circle in the 70s and he nearly married her daughter. Pointed in the direction of symbolist poetry by Robert de Montesquiou in 1886 and admired by Proust, Faure was the favoured composer of the Princesse de Polignac by the early 1890s. In 1905 he became Director of the Paris Conservatoire and he composed his most profound music in old age. His existence, steadily productive and outwardly imperturbable, was undermined by self-doubt, an unhappy marriage, and a tragic loss of hearing. The distinguished accompanist and song scholar Graham Johnson places the vocal music within twin contexts: Faure's own life story, and the parallel lives of his many poets. We encounter such giants as Charles Baudelaire and Paul Verlaine, the patrician Leconte de Lisle, the forgotten Armand Silvestre and the Belgian symbolist Charles van Lerberghe. The chronological range of the narrative encompasses Faure's first poet, Victor Hugo, who railed against Napoleon III in the 1850s, and the last, Jean de la Ville de Mirmont, killed in action in the First World War. In this comprehensive and richly illustrated study each of Faure's 109 songs receives a separate commentary. Additional chapters for the student singer and serious music-lover discuss interpretation and performance in both aesthetical and practical terms. Richard Stokes provides parallel English translations of the original French texts. In the twenty-first century musical modernity is evaluated differently than it was thirty years ago. Faure is no longer merely a 'Master of Charms' circumscribed by the Belle Epoque. His status as a modern master of timeless significance is now unassailable.

Descripción Ashgate Publishing Company, 2009. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Gabriel Faur (1845-1924) trained at the Ecole Niedermeyer (1854-65) as organist and choirmaster, coming under the influence of Saint-Sans and his circle while working as a church musician and giving lessons. Many of his French colleagues found Faur's music severe and uncompromising, but the English quickly embraced his refinement as an improving discipline in an uncouth world. He was widely regarded as the greatest master of French song, and he produced six important cycles and three collections each of twenty pieces. Here, Graham Johnson provides an engaging and insightful companion to Faur's songs and duets and traces the organic development of the composer. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0754659607
