Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

In creating the 12-part choral masterpiece Figure humaine, the poet Eluard and composer Poulenc were the perfect team. Eluard's poignant and sinister surrealistic texts are very moving and their wonderfully expressive language depicts the horrors of the Second World War. Also featured here are Poulenc's Mass in G, Un Soir de Niege and Sept Chansons. This stunning new super-audio recording featuring the Swedish Radio Choir led by Peter Dijkstra brings out all the colors and complexities of these key works of the twentieth century.

The Telegraph
Poulenc felt his choral works contained the best of him, and this CD makes one think he was right...There's an innate nobility in this music, which the choir brings out superbly. The sopranos float Poulenc's high lines with ease, and his densely packed harmonies register with total clarity.
