Editorial Reviews

Product Description

A recital of French song by one of the great singers of the 20th century. Souzay possessed a warm, lyrical, supple, sensual and vibrant voice, a love of words, a superb technique and a natural gift for expression.

Review

This is ravishingly beautiful singing from a
heart and mind big enough to comprehend the complexities of the design --Gramophone, January 1964 - Duparc performance review

I can think of no singer, unless it be Pierre Bernac who is now rather a veteran, who could hold a candle to Souzay in this collection, and the light, easy placing of the voice in relation to Dalton Baldwin's immaculate piano accompaniment is very happy indeed. These are wonderful songs; witty, sad, poetic, 'fetching' if I may use the word, and I find that many of them sing in your memory endlessly. In brief, since more criticism of a fault finding nature is out of place, a collection to acquire and cherish --Gramophone, March 1969 - Poulenc performance review

FIRST RATE PERFORMANCES BY M. SOUZAY, AS YOU WOULD EXPECT. AND, OF COURSE, EXCELLENT ACCOMPANIMENT BY MR BALDWIN. THERE ARE GREAT SONGS HERE AND A FEW RARITIES WHICH ARE WELCOME. IF THIS IS YOUR TASTE IN MUSIC YOU WON'T GO WRONG WITH THIS ALBUM..

I recently bought a CD , called " Melodies Francaises` sung by Gerard Souzay. But, what a pity, when I got the CD, in the little booklet there were just the titles of the " melodiés " ( these are no songs) but no full texts of the poems. Even when, mostly these are poems by famous poets. And the text is almost as important as the composer's work!
