Notes & Reviews:

Andre Caplet was a student, friend and orchestrator of several scores of Debussy. Still a little too much in the shadow of his master, here are some of his melodies, beautifully served by, among other qualities 'narrator' interpreters.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Maguelone has issued a series of 25 albums called Melodiste Francais - songs of Massenet, Leguerney, Poulenc, Ravel, and Max d'Ollone. Caplet's songs are interesting. Caplet made orchestral transcriptions of many Debussy pieces. After listening to this I read that Caplet was also a timpanist in his early career - and I can hear that here. People not familiar with Caplet's melodies may find them progressive. The composer used text painting, which creates more dramatic sounds and possibilities for the singer and pianist. Ms Favat's sound is fascinating. Her French is impeccable. Her well schooled musicianship is outstanding. Farvat and Marand make a very good team. Together they display a remarkable range of emotion and sound. A solid performance of repertoire not often heard.
