Karg, Christiane - Parfum - Various

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
This selection of French poems from the second half of the nineteenth century is influenced by the Impressionism and Symbolism of that era. Most of them are snapshots, though the authors were not simply interested in a simple and realistic reproduction of what they had experienced: in fact, they contain a host of symbols and linguistic images that lend the event being described a special and unique character that goes far beyond the reality: like the aroma of a costly perfume that evaporates and leaves behind just a hint of elegance. And since the poetry loves that word so much and the setting of these poems emphasises evanescence and the intangible, “Parfum” seemed to me to be the ideal title for this recording. That gives a lovely sense of melancholy that evaporates as soon as one is aware of it, and only blossoms in the poetry and the music through memory and refinement, obliging listeners to give free rein to their imaginations. The “l’art pour l’art” movement, that is art for art’s sake, in the spirit of which these poems were written has perfused the art of France, Germany and all the other European nations for more than 100 years. The desire for artificiality and pure beauty – now in soft pastel tones, then in dark, rich colours, but always with a transparency that is inherent in the French style. This album is pure poetry – taking its spark from Christiane Karg’s engagement with the poetical works of Charles Baudelaire, Leconte de Lisle, Paul Verlaine, Tristan Klingsor and Victor Hugo. A poetry in diction that has a wonderful affinity with Impressionist music at the turn from the 19th to the 20th century. Christiane Karg finally decided upon works by Duparc, Koechlin, Debussy and Ravel for her new album. Her selection also includes an early composition by Benjamin Britten, which in its turn was inspired by Debussy and Ravel. Christiane Karg’s voice wafts this poetic scent, these colours in sound, aloft. Poetry and music, words and voice blend into “Parfum”! tourdates USA: 25.04.: Ann Arbor (U.S.) 25.04.: Kansas City (U.S.) 30.04.: New York (U.S.): Carnegie Hall 02.05.: Washington (U.S.)
