The Art of French Song. Vol. 1. 19th and 20th Century Repertoire. High Voice/Hohe Stimme.
Complete with translations and guidance on pronunciation = Mit Übersetzungen und Hinweisen zur Aussprache.
Selected and Edited by Roger Nichols.
Those interested in French music have often had reason to be grateful to Roger Vichols; his writings on Debussy, Ravel, Messiaen and Poulenc are indispensable to the music lover. Nichols now turns his attentions to the mélodie, where it is his mission to encourage singers to explore beyond the well trodden paths of French song. In these two anthologies he does not ignore masterpieces by composers of the stature of Fauré and Duparc, but sets them alongside music - almost imposible to find elsewhere in print - by such underestimated figures as Reber, Viardot, Massé, and Paladilhe. Even the more celebrated songs are often not easily found in oractical editions, which makes this selection an ideal starting point for wider exploration.
In each of these volumes the songs appear in the chronological order of their composer's birth, but Nichols somehow contrives a line up of music which seems delightfully arbitrary at the same time as carefully designed to enrich everyone's understanding of the mélodie. The books also contain a remarkable amount of scholarship, lightly worn and pithily expressed. As well as complete translations of the songs, there is a useful and concise introduction on singing in French, together with an illuminating historical note and critica) commentary; and Nichols gives full due to the poets who were of crucial importante in the development of the mélodie tradition. The editions champion French music in bringing this repertoire to new audiences, addressing the special needs of both English and German speakers in the translations and guidance on pronunciation and interpretation. All-in-all these books are indispensable to anyone with the same sense of delight and adventure that characterizes this wonderful repertoire - one of France's unsung, or at least under sung, national treasures.
