David, Félicien - Mélodies


Lägg till önskelista + 159 kr - Utgången

This world première recording presents 18 art songs (mélodies) by the French composer Félicien David (1810-1876). Its release is scheduled to coincide with the celebrations of this composer in France, from March to August 2014, with Le Désert (Cité de la Musique, Paris), Herculanum (Opéra Royal, Versailles), Le Saphir (Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord, Paris), and Christophe Colomb (Berlioz Festival, La Côte-Saint-André).
Published in the 1830s, Félicien David's mélodies were written in response to the keen interest shown at that time in simple pieces for voice and piano, intended for performance in the homes of the aristocracy and the middle classes. They sold like hot cakes, bringing the young composer fame and popularity. He was referred to as 'the French Schubert' (the latter's music was in vogue at that time in Paris) and indeed the influence of the Viennese composer can be felt in some of his pieces: 'Le Nuage' calls to mind 'Gretchen am Spinnrade', his piano is expressive ('L'Océan') and he makes use of echoes ('Reviens, reviens') and major-minor alternations ('Le Vieillard et les roses' and 'Oubli'). Some of the texts are tinged with exoticism: references to North Africa and the Middle East, parts of the world that were dear to Félicien David.
These songs, recorded here for the very first time and performed by first-rate artists, contribute to the rediscovery of one of the major composers of the nineteenth century!
