Symphonies overwhelm me, operas impress me. Yet the small form of the French art song can be just as exciting and fascinating. It has therefore been my dearest wish for many years to devote a CD to the gems of French song in their finest settings. I have here selected four of the greatest French composers, all of them masters of these musical miniatures. Each of these composers is unique in his own way. Massenet composed incredibly emotional Romantic tone-paintings; Fauré was second to none in composing songs that provide special kaleidoscopic insight into personal inner worlds; Debussy’s finesse elegantly transformed poetry into music and finally Satie’s visionary musical ideas and splendidly bizarre humour made him a pioneer of surrealism. These songs are extremely condensed masterpieces – some introvert and timid, some explosively Romantic. (Eva Lind)
