Vol. 3 concludes this edition of Francis Poulenc's complete songs for baritone and piano by Holger Falk and Alessandro Zuppardo.
The program on this disc covers an exceptionally broad spectrum ranging from the bacchanal Chansons Galliardes through the enchanting Cocardes to enigmatic texts by Jean Cocteau and songs of profound sorrow from the Résistance. This music was made for Holger Falk, whose incredible vocal versatility and verbal perfection make this colorful program a sonorous feast for fans of art song - and not only for them!
“Holger Falk’s vocal interpretations are superbly nuanced and avoid histrionic extremes, Alessandro Zuppardo’s accompaniments the summit of refinement and a continuously colourful equal partnership. MDG production and presentation are as good as faultless.” MusicWeb
